Personal Skylab

Happy, Happy 50th, Skylab

In my house, this is a holiday. We talk about 100 pound computers and the experiments that are hinted at, but only 80 of them listed. Talk about Pete Conrad’s favorite foods or Robert Crippen’s patch preference start. It was a beginning in our species attempt to live off-world. Surely science fiction would have continued to tell the stories of humans off planet, but Skylab was the science nonfiction for us all.
