Ray Bradbury author of Fahrenheit 451 has passed away. I read this book in high school and loved it. I am slo sure I ripped off the idea for a short story I wrote in high school, but that is not important. Anyway, NASA put together a great memorial for him.
The video is set to Bradbury reading his poem “If Only We Had Been Taller” in honor of the 1971 Mission To Mars. If this doesn’t convince you that we need to be back in space, nothing will.
