One of them planted this tree

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


90 Years Ago My Grandfather and Father

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


78 Years Ago I loved reading Buck Rogers, 25th Century, and dreamed what the world might be, and what I might be

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


I bought the sub title
I bought the sub-title

  • I was born 500years too soon!

!

Therefore, I Thought about space, but never worried about it.

However, my interest was always there

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Who could have possibly guessed

Who could have possibly guessed

That I would see men launched into space, and one day would receive

a telephone call from a man in space?


56 Years Ago, I participated in a nuclear test that has been credited by some for launching a man-hole cover into Space

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


This happened prior

to the Russians launching Sputnik!

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee




The Question Arose: What are they doing, and can we understand it?

So we began some space experiments of our own to see what was up!

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


And Noctilucent Clouds became a understand it?research project of ours

These are easily seen from orbit

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Now, to the Main Point! understand it?

SPACE

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


A vacuum has some real attractions
A understand it?VACUUMHAS SOME REALATTRACTIONS

(It Likes To Be Filled)

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


In the universe there are bits of mass here and there

IN THE UNIVERSE understand it?There are bits of mass here and there

Each bit of mass is mostly space

So, the Universe is Mostly Space!

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


If we are going to understand the Universe, understand it?

We must understand space

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Is empty space empty
IS EMPTY SPACE EMPTY? understand it?

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


NO! understand it?

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


EVERY VOLUME OF “EMPTY” SPACE understand it?

HAS PASSING THROUGH IT PHOTONS FROM EVERYWHERE!

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


It understand it?is Occupied By an Electromagnetic Field

And a Gravitational Field

(and dark energy, and maybe strings, or membranes, or things yet to be named)

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Information of all kinds is there including the history of the universe
INFORMATION understand it? OF ALL KINDS IS THEREINCLUDING THE HISTORYOF THE UNIVERSE

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


And that is why we need to go into space
AND THAT IS WHY understand it? WE NEED TO GOINTO SPACE

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Each volume of space needs urgently a detector a data processor and a brain somewhere
EACH VOLUME OF SPACE NEEDS understand it?,(URGENTLY)A DETECTOR,A DATA PROCESSORAND A BRAIN, SOMEWHERE

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


We do this in a great variety of ways
WE DO THIS IN A GREAT VARIETY OF WAYS understand it?

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Putting detectors in space is pretty common nowadays
Putting Detectors understand it?in Space is pretty common nowadays

And data processors come cheap

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


While the brain can be on earth if we choose putting a brain in space is special
WHILE THE BRAIN CAN BE ON EARTH IF WE CHOOSE understand it?PUTTING A BRAIN IN SPACE IS SPECIAL

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Remember a brain is connected to detectors and is its own data processor
REMEMBER understand it?A BRAIN IS CONNECTED TO DETECTORS, AND IS ITS OWN DATA PROCESSOR

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


SO, PUTTING A BRAIN IN SPACE IS A GREAT IDEA understand it?

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


But difficult and costly
But understand it?Difficultand Costly

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


The real problem is toilets

Brains come with bodies understand it?

(The real problem is toilets!)

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Let’s Take A Short Look At Launching Six Men Into Space On November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


One of them is a long-time friend and colleague November 23, 2002

DON PETTIT

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Endeavor on its way to the launch pad November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Any Time of Day, It Is Beautiful November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Don always seems to be at the right place November 23, 2002

ISS as seen Dec 3, 2002 November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


As Seen Nowadays November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


SOMETIMES, BRAINS CAN BE ASSOCIATED WITH PEOPLE November 23, 2002

and sometimes not

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


And Don November 23, 2002in space can Report On Many Things

He dreams up experiments!

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


The Solar System has dozens of places to visit with profit November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


The Moon November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Mars November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


IO, a Jupiter Moon November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Comets are frequent, and need attention! November 23, 2002

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


A Strong Argument Can Be Made That Intelligent Life is Rare, even Exceedingly Rare

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Whereas In Days Of Yore Any even Exceedingly RareScientific Argument Giving Man a Special Place Was Manifestly Wrong

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Nowadays, A Different Picture Is Emerging even Exceedingly Rare

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Our Sun is Enormously Stable, Even If It Doesn’t Look It even Exceedingly Rare

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


The Moon and The Earth are Truly A Special Duo even Exceedingly Rare

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Jupiter, As Big As A Planet Can Be Without Becoming A Star, Protects the Earth

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


For Life To Form On Protects the Earth

A Planet, It Takes A Very Special Solar System

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


And A Lot More Time Than The Sun Is Old! Protects the Earth

(This point it Debatable, but It Is My Carefully Considered Conclusion)

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


My Conclusion: Protects the Earth

There Is A Lot of Life in Our Galaxy, But We Very Well May Be

Out In Front!

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Decades Ago Protects the Earth

Los Alamos Developed A Nuclear Rocket Engine To Go To Mars

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


That Is What It Takes To Go To Another Solar System! Protects the Earth

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Dr. Eric Jones (of Los Alamos) Has Concluded That If Man Goes From Solar System to Solar System Every 20 Generations

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


The Entire Galaxy Can Be Colonized In Only 60 Million Years! Goes From Solar System to Solar System Every 20 Generations

(An Eyeblink)

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Whatever One Makes of These Beliefs And Speculations, Aren’t We Blessed to See Man Embark On His Space Missions?

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


Well we used to be

Well, we used to be! Aren’t We Blessed to See Man Embark On His Space Missions?

Now to see an astronaut launched

We have to go to Kazakhstan

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


So in december 2011 i went to kazakhstan to see mr pettit launched again
So, in Aren’t We Blessed to See Man Embark On His Space Missions?December, 2011I went to Kazakhstanto see Mr. Pettit launched again!

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee



Watched the soyuez on its way to the launch site

Watched the Soyuez on its way to the launch site quarantine

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee



And launched
And Launched! quarantine

Dr. Robert R. Brownlee


It was truly special to see a soyuz missile up close

It was truly special to see a quarantineSoyuz Missile up close


Don will be in the iss until may 2012

Don will be in the ISS until May, 2012. quarantine

We’ll add information as necessary.

Dr. Robert R Brownlee


So americans are going into space

So Americans are going into space quarantine

Is America?


No we are only watching

No, we are only watching quarantine

We can watch Russia, the Europeans, the Japanese, and the Chinese
