Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Going to Mars is something we plainly aren't going to give up on any time soon. Here are all the Mars exploration missions up to 2011 on one map, created in 2009 by Bryan Cristie Design. Today marks NASA's launch window for sending another rover to Mars; the new rover is called Curiosity: "The spacecraft, which will arrive at Mars in August 2012, is equipped with the most advanced rover ever to land on another planet. ... [T]he rover will investigate whether the landing region has had environmental conditions favorable for supporting microbial life, and favorable for preserving clues about whether life existed. On Nov. 26, NASA Television coverage of the launch will begin at 4:30 a.m. PST (7:30 a.m. EST). Live launch coverage will be carried on all NASA Television channels. For NASA Television downlink information, schedule information and streaming video, visit: http://www.nasa.gov/ntv. The launch coverage will also be streamed live on Ustream at http://www.ustream.tv/nasajpl." (Hat tip: Lee Hamilton.)
