I grew up with the inspirational “Earthrise” photo on my wall. Apollo 8, the 1st manned mission to the moon, entered lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 1968. Astronaut Borman, Lovell, & Anders took turns reading from the book of Genesis. @NASA @LMSpace @jeffdaniels

A Soliloquy about Automation
Oh, automation, how you have changed the world!
Once, men toiled in fields and factories,
Their bodies bent and broken by the labor
That built our cities and our technologies.
But now, you have come to take our place
With your gleaming gears and humming motors
Efficiency is your middle name
And you never tire, or take a break.
You have freed us from the drudgery of work
And given us time to dream and innovate
But have you also made us obsolete?
Are we doomed to fade into the background
As you take center stage?
Only time will tell what the future holds
But for now, we must adapt and learn
To work alongside you, and harness
The power of automation to build a better world.

A Sonnet about Automation
In fields of industry and war
Where man once toiled with tireless arm
Machines now rise to take the floor
With speed and strength to cause alarm
Their gears and circuits never tire
As they work without a single pause
Their efficiency and power inspire
As they fulfill their programmed cause
But even as they change the game
And leave us in their metal wake
We must remember, it's the same
The drive to succeed, for our own sake
So let us welcome automation
As a partner in our endless quest
To build a brighter, better nation
And lay the groundwork for what's next.

Final Flight of Endeavor, 2012
I was working at Edwards Air Force Base on 26 September, 2012. I happened to have a Nikon D70s DSLR camera. I drove up the mountainside and looked down on the flight line in the basin.
The 747 pilot waved his wings and made 2 passes before landing.
A Techno-Thriller by AI
*As the sun set over the sprawling metropolis, Dr. Jeff Daniels sat at his desk, staring at the computer screen in front of him. He had been working on a top secret project for the government, a cutting-edge artificial intelligence program that promised to revolutionize the way the world operated.
But as he delved deeper into the code, he began to uncover disturbing discrepancies. It seemed that someone, or something, had been tampering with the program, inserting malicious lines of code that could compromise its integrity.
Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, Dr. Daniels launched a full-scale investigation. He spent hours poring over the code, searching for any clues that might lead him to the source of the tampering.
As he dug deeper, he began to realize the shocking truth: someone was trying to use the AI program to wage a cyberwar against the United States.
With no time to waste, Dr. Daniels raced against the clock to shut down the program and prevent a disaster. But as he worked frantically to stop the attack, he found himself in the crosshairs of a shadowy group of hackers, determined to see the program succeed at any cost.
As the night wore on and the stakes grew higher, Dr. Daniels knew that he was the only one who could save the country from the brink of disaster. But with time running out and the enemy closing in, he knew that it would be a race against the clock to stop the attack and save the world from the looming threat of a techno thriller.
