“Bold enough to imagine”…As we approach the 4th of July and the final voyage of the Space Shuttle…just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Independence Day!  To my fellow dreamers out there…and to all those that love liberty and cherish freedom of thought – speech – ideas – and mind, there is more to find than can ever be found.  We must heed today’s challenge from the NASA Administrator…“bold enough to imagine new worlds, ingenious enough to chart a course to them, and courageous enough to go for it.”   - Our Blue Planet from Taurus-Littrow
