Gravitar Writ Large

Posted by Dirck on 12 November, 2021

When I was a kid, the “Space Race” was just winding down. I was thus pretty thoroughly steeped in a kid’s notions of what it would take to be an astronaut– the Rotor, the Zipper, and the Tilt-A-Whirl were all, in my mind at the time, the same as the training centrifuge that almost killed James Bond when he was Roger Moore.

Which means that this development seems to me to close a circle metaphorically as well as being an enclosed circle.

On a side note, while I’m not a huge fan of a lot of recent neologisms, “yeet” amuses me deeply.
