Time Travel is fun. Research and read about the past, or speculate about, plan and then create, the future. Hold an antique artifact in your hand - a Roman coin, a Victorian revolver, or a 1932 radio tube - and imagine who else held
this item, and the journey through time it has made. For the future, one need only wait to travel there.
[Update: May 7, 2017] Ok, so Donald Trump is the President of the USA, and Elon Musk, a private citizen running a public company,
has taken over the US Space Program. He has just lifted a spy satellite for the US Gov't that can monitor anything, and his rockets launch and then return their primary boost stage to earth for a gentle, controlled landing. England has voted
to withdraw from the European Union, and now has a new Conservative Prime Minister named Theresa May, (not to be confused with the leader of the Green Party in Canada, Elizabeth May). Ms. May (the British one) has begun the "Brexit" process. And
today, France just elected a 39-year old former investment banker to be their President, who promises closer ties with Europe. As I travel into the future, it seems to be getting a bit silly.
