Love this photo.. I wish Robert could see this. He would approve.
Great photo of NASA astronauts with Falcon 9, helping prepare cargo for Dragon's next trip to station.

Great photo. Photos like this are always a hit on the Facebook page. Over 200 views. Space-X and Elon Musk won a Heinlein award.

They did?

Am I the only one unaware of that?

He keeps the sword, Lady Vitamus (I'm sorry, I can't remember the spelling. I know one of you guys can spell it correctly) on his desk. I read an interview with him in a major magazine, Time or some such biggy. In the interview he explained to the interviewer the importance of the sword and how and why it was awarded to him. The interviewer picked it up and got finger prints on it. Elon promptly wiped off the finger prints and said it was one of his most prized possessions.

You should read the article. I'll try to find out mag for you. Be right back.

I'm fairly sure it was Time magazine but I can't put my finger on it. Here's the info on Elon Musk from the Heinlein prize website.

Cheers guys!

Thinker - the Lady Vivamus sword that is part of the Heinlein Prize is an authorized version produced by Albion Swords. You can see pictures and purchase one at this site:
http://www.albion-swords.com/swords/albion/late/sword-lady-vivamus.htm

Albion's Lady Vivamus is a beautiful sword and it certainly is true to the description in Glory Road, but it was designed before a letter from Heinlein concerning Lady Vivamus came to light. If you are interested in that, you can read about it and see my interpretation of Lady Vivamus here:

That URL doesn't work. Here's the corrected version.

What is supposed to happen in a democracy is that each sovereign citizen will always vote in the public interest for the safety and welfare of all. But what does happen is that he votes his own self-interest as he sees it... which for the majority translates as 'Bread and Circuses'. Heinlein, Robert A. (Printed 1991). To Sail Beyond the Sunset. Page 234. An Orbit Book.

I usually post a Heinlein saying once a week on Saturday.
