?Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.? Yes, boys and girls, Hollywood?s long winter of Oscar-primed weepies is over and that glorious summer of box office boffos is upon us. If the new ?Star Trek? is the opening salvo, we?re in for an exciting time. Without any previous experience of the vast and variable ?Star Trek? lore, director J. J. Abrams has taken a tired trope from the 1960s Cold War and turned it into a spiffy new thrill ride. All the favorite characters of a dyed-in-the-wool Trekkie are in place but fleshed out by new, fresh faces.

For almost 20 years JPL's annual Open House has attracted visitors from all over Southern California and beyond. Each area of exploration, from Earth science to outside our own galaxy, is represented not only with pictures and models but also by experts who can answer any and all questions. For example, at the "Ask A Martian" booth at the Mars exhibit at the open house last weekend questions ranged from: "Is their life on Mars?" to "How does JPL prepare the equipment to explore so far away?"

During a recent weekend Crescenta Valley Park hearkened back to the days of ladies and lords, knighthood and a Camelot-type kingdom.

We need radio lamps. Aw heck, we need radio everything. WHY ARE WE STILL DEALING WITH ELECTRICAL WIRES? Why am I crawling around on the floor plugging in lamps, TVs, computers and so forth? Especially computers — don't you hate those ugly snarls of wire which need multiple surge controllers? Surge controllers? What's up with that? Those. Them. Incredibly bulky them.
