Exoplanet Habitability & Human Adaptation

An Ethical Treatise

Why Don’t We Just Go Find Out If We Can Live There? One of the challenges space explorers would face is determining the habitability of a planet. Signs of oxygen in the atmosphere don’t mean it is breathable. A breathable atmosphere is likely mitigated by a hostile biosphere or environmental conditions you don’t know about until you arrive.

The ethical problem is how to determine habitability without dooming the explorers. Yes, space explorers and potential colonists would probably be volunteers, assuming they’re all fully informed adults. However, they’d still be faced with the challenge of fully exploring a planet and mapping out the risks without losing so many of their number that they are doomed, they are now too few to survive while waiting for a follow-up ship or having lost their viability as a colony.

‘How he hated the human race. His life should have turned out so differently.’

This innovative debut novel blends three storylines: pirates in the Bahamas in the 1600s, Aaron Burr’s efforts in the early 1800s, and a contemporary story featuring Connor Murray…

The New Adventures of Justin T. Fairchild, Social Justice Warrior: Episode 1, The Secret Society

The ongoing series returns!

January 2017: It was six weeks after the 2016 election, and I was sitting with my seven-month-old son Richie in our house in Bristol, New Jersey. I had more cause for mourning than other progressives. Not only had our standard-bearer, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, lost the Electoral College to the most unqualified candidate in American history (despite winning the popular vote), but I lost my race for the 13th Congressional District of New Jersey to the incumbent.

SNOWFLAKE’S CHANCE: THE 2016 CAMPAIGN DIARY OF JUSTIN T. FAIRCHILD, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR is available for download at Amazon.

How the Star Wars Sequels Could Have Succeeded

Use the Force, Disney

When did Star Wars “jump the shark?” Compared to Star Trek, right out of the gate….  Star Trek was from the very beginning back in the mid-sixties a reasonable and optimistic extrapolation into the future of the historical course of American well-ordered liberty.

Johnny Tremain: Rites of Passage in Classical Literature for Boys, Part 4

And some of us would die – so other men can stand up on their feet like men. A great many are going to die for that. They have in the past. They will a hundred years from now – two hundred. God grant there will always be men good enough.”

Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes is an overtly moralistic tale, and an unabashed, old-fashioned ode to the patriotism and spirit of the founding generation. It was written in the afterglow of “the Greatest Generation’s” victory in WWII. Its protagonist begins the story as a uniquely talented and bright silversmith’s apprentice. Johnny was only too aware of his best qualities – which in turn brought out his worst. He lorded over and bullied the other apprentices, especially the older but duller Dove. The blowback was disastrous – literally crippling – and changed the course of a life Johnny had well planned.
