History is not always bad
Sometimes it was so good that you know in your heart
that it was.
Some of our history is a teaching tool as to what does not work so don't do it again or you will get the same results (Déjà vu)!
Sometimes you just know that some history is worthy of preserving.
I believe this to be one of those times!
Campaign launched to restore NASA's historic mission control room
CBS News August 1, 2017, 8:16 AM
NASA used the mission control room with its monochrome computer monitors and rotary dial telephones starting in 1965. It went dark in 1992, well into the shuttle program.
With NASA's slashed budget, the agency's priority is the future of space travel, not preserving its past. Space Center Houston, the non-profit that runs the visitors center here, has launched a $5 million fundraising campaign to restore this room to its 1960s glory.
Restore Historic Mission Control
Historic Mission Control urgently needs restoration. Please help preserve this National Historic Landmark.
Accept the Webster Challenge! Help restore this Apollo-era landmark.
Campaign Launched to Restore NASA's Historic Mission Control Room
Mission Control restoration would be completed for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing
Houston, we have a problem.
NASA's Mission Control at the Johnson Space Center in Houston is in desperate need of a restoration after years of neglect has left the Texas nerve center for the United States space program in disrepair and looted by souvenir-seekers who walked off with pieces of space history.

What Wind Power Critics Who Cry 'Bird' Get Wrong

Wind energy is one of the most promising sources of renewable energy out there. Land-based wind farmsgenerate essentially no pollution and have more overall energy-producing and money-saving potential than solar farms. If wind energy has downsides, they are that the turbines cost a lot to build, and that they kill birds. Or at least that's the story.
But how many birds do wind turbines really kill? And is it appreciably more than other sources of power? According to recent research, stats on the number of birds killed annually by collisions with giant, spinning wind turbines is either ambiguous or lower than one might imagine, given the fact that bird-killing is one of the top on the "Cons" side of the "Should We Build a Bunch of Wind Farms To Combat Climate Change?" pros-and-cons list.
One 2011 study found there's really no telling how many birds are actually taken out by wind turbines, since bird mortalities seem to differ so much between wind farms — suggesting that the location of the farms might have more to do with how many birds they kill than the fact of the turbines themselves. The study examined bird data for various sites before and after the construction of the facilities, and found a weak relationship between how many birds they predicted would die as a result of the wind farm, and the actual mortalities.
A 2013 study found that bird mortality from wind turbines actually differs from place to place (at least in Canada, where the research was conducted) and between species, while a 2009 study found that although, sure, wind turbines might kill some flying vertebrates, the numbers couldn't possibly hold a candle to the bird and bat fatalities caused by other forms of power generation. That study estimates that while U.S. wind farms were responsible for the deaths of about 7,000 birds in 2006, nuclear plants killed around 327,000 and fossil-fueled power plants 14.5 million. The researchers broke up the data proportionally, finding that while each gigawatt-hour (GWh) of energy produced by a wind farm was associated with 0.3 fatalities, about 5.2 birds would die at a fossil-fuel facility for the same amount of energy produced.

In January Trump,
Instead of summoning the best in America’s ideals,
Mr. Trump offered a fantastical version of America losing its promise, military dominance and middle-class wealth to
“The ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.”
With sweeping exaggeration,
Mr. Trump spoke of

He deplored all of this decline as a betrayal of America,
implicitly trashing the four former presidents
who sat listening behind him at the inaugural ceremony.
Those presidents, Democratic and Republican, must have put
