I've heard it suggested they should send a poet to truly capture and communicate the feeling of being in space.

I'm NOT volunteering.

Now that, Mags, is a gem of an idea.
We could all vote for the worst poet and send him/her
[think William Topaz McGonagall ] or worse.

There was a young lass from down under,
that decided to travel out yonder.
Passing first by the moon,
then not seeing the red planet too soon,
"Perhaps this was a mistake," she pondered.

I'll complete the answer when you complete the question.

I had a test last week that (I was told) made me radioactive for a few days (told the guy there I'd watch for spiders), & that was followed by a difficult blood-draw.

People have told me I'm pretty small & pretty thin, but I know I'm nothin' special to look at.

I had a similar test a year or two ago, but I had to steer clear of everyone for 24 hours (glow-in-the-dark Instructor ?).
I wish I'd been able to get closer to a Geiger Counter, just to spook them !

They sold these just a little before my time, but think about it...let's give kids actual uranium to play with and see what happens!

"And you knew where you WERRRRE THENNNN!!!..." Still kills me the guy they called "Meathead" has done so much for pop culture since then.

I think they sell something similar in Charlotte these days.... Call it a "Guy-Or-Girl Counter".

Sadly, we never saw these over in England; well, my part, anyway.
We got Meccano, and jolly good it was, too; if you could afford it.

I remember a couple of friends and me pooling our Meccano parts to build a Tiger Moth. It didn't fly.

We had erector sets in the late fifties and early sixties, but when these came out they kind of took over.

These days, the kids play with an "App" (whatever that means) on their mobile phone; usually to the exclusion of anything practical.
So sad. . . .

I spend a lot of time at the Mall & things when the weather's nicer, & see a bunch of people of varying ages looking down at phones, or over at other people, heading right for me...

One day, I quietly said to one/myself, "Look where you're going, not..." but have yet to create a good/right finish for that.

I don't have any apps, nor a cell phone that would make it an option to get any. I stick with calling myself "a smart person with a stupid phone", & joking that "an app is something I get when I'm _ired".

Apps can be extremely useful and entertaining but they certainly aren't necessary for a full and rich life. Of course, that can be said of a myriad of things which we've been sold over the years.
