<b>Thrillin' at the MacMillan #1: Space Tourism</b><br />
© 2007 by Spider Robinson<br />
<br />
I’ve spent several decades rebutting silly complaints about “money wasted in space.” Dollars have been spent getting there—but every single buck stopped here, on the ground, in the pocket of some ...
<b>Thrillin' at the MacMillan #2: Sustaining the Planet</b><br />
© 2007 by Spider Robinson<br />
<br />
Sustaining the planet means widely different things to all of us—so let’s try and define our aim. The phrase surely isn’t meant literally. Terra was sustaining herself just fine for millions ...
<b>Thrillin' at the MacMillan #3: Spirituality of Space</b><br />
© 2007 by Spider Robinson<br />

© 2007 by Spider Robinson<br />
<br />

<b>Thrillin' at the MacMillan #6: Space Law</b><br />
© 2007 by Spider Robinson<br />
<br />
Ask Elliot Ness. The power of a law—its meaning—depends on who’s committed to enforcing it, and how far they’re prepared to go. In David Milch’s HBO series Deadwood, nobody seems prepared to enforce ...
<b>Thrillin' at the MacMillan #7: Space Society</b><br />
© 2007 by Spider Robinson<br />
<br />
“Space Society” is an ambiguous topic, just as “Space Art” was. There’s more than one way to interpret it. <br />
<br />
The easy way out would be to discuss some of the largest of the many organizations ...
<b>Thrillin' at the MacMillan #8: Space Generation</b><br />
© 2007 by Spider Robinson<br />
<br />
The first thing “space generation” makes me think of is the quantum ramjet, a hypothetical star drive I chose as the motive force for the starship Charles Sheffield in VARIABLE STAR, my new collaboration ...
