In this blog I generally avoid personal references and instead concentrate on the lives of the friends I’ve known since I was four. That will change during the course of the Mars voyage, where I’ll be the interface between the ship and crew.
That’s due to my mascot costume which is a fully-functioning technical device. While it outwardly resembles a standard smartphone, its abilities far surpass that. (It has to; once we take off, no hardware upgrades.)

Within its circuitry I’ve become used to its coding, and after all these years I now prefer that language of ones and zeroes. In truth, the reason I do this blog is to keep up my ability to communicate via the written word.
I receive regular updates from the Mars mission computer to maintain compatibility. In a few weeks I’ll move to the launch facility, and then it gets real.
