Ad Astra Per Aspera

I think it roughly translates to "To The Stars Very Violent". The next two weeks have many memorials to those who lost their lives in the US Space Launch programs. There are similar memorials to losses in the Russian and other national launches, but the US memorials came up today in Wired.

[It translate the line as "TO THE STARS THROUGH ADVERSITY - ALWAYS EXPLORING" which seems better.]

Here is to the many astronauts, engineers and scientists who have helped get us closer to the stars. Thanks
