Honey, what about the pig?

Honey, what about the pig?

This is a picture I took back in 1984 while I was living in Cusco, Peru, for one year as an exchange student. I chose not to dust the slides (oops, mistake!) so, well, they’re kind of dusty!

I don’t remember what town this was in, but it was certainly in the province of Cusco… maybe on the way to or from Urubamba. This was a common form of transport in Cusco.

No me acuerdo en qué ciudad estuvimos, pero creo que estabamos de vuelta a Cusco de Urubamba o tal vez de Pisaq.

I love the fact that I used to live in a place where pigs just roamed the town! I didn’t actually live in this place, but I lived it Cusco, which is within an hours drive from wherever this was taken.

11/14/07 I have this picture up as my desktop right now… when I got home tonight after class I turned my computer on and was admiring the pig. It struck me that most people that I know probably didn’t ever live in a place where pigs roamed the streets! While I was looking at this picture, I noticed the landscape and how much it looked like it would have lots of landslides. Then I remembered from my studying for my Geography exam last week that the Andes mountains are volcanic mountains, i.e. that they were formed by volcanic action. Then I thought about how many Earthquakes they have because of being a volcanic place… and THEN I was thinking about El Sen~or de los Temblores (god of earthquakes)… and then, I logged out of flickr and went, uncharacteristically, to CNN and there was a picture with a caption about a 7.7 earthquake in northern Chile. I thought "Wow…" Why? Because I had just been thinking about Our Man of the Earthquakes moments before and there it was in the headline of CNN’s main web page.

Pressurized Vehicle

Pressurized Vehicle

Some of the big engineering challenges and safety problems to manned exploration of The Moon and Mars, are that spacesuits have to be pressurized, and this makes it difficult for astronauts to bend knees, elbows and fingers, causing them to get fatigued quickly. Radiation and dust contamination for the crew is a major health risk and spacesuit failure from rips, meteors, and cracks are fatal.

In this concept we have my pressurized vehicle that could transport explorers over long distances and harsh landscapes, like an ant on roller skates, each of the six legs can move independently, with a full range of movement over and around large obstacles and adjusting for inclination as needed. The astronaut would egress from the roof of the crew cabin into the bucket via an airlock in the floor of the bucket. Then like a cherry picker, the astronaut would move the bucket into the spot the astronaut wanted to be in, up high on a cliff or face down on the deck and they will look at samples closeup with their own eyes, then using the robotic arms for collecting the samples. The robotic hands could be changed out with different tools on the fly. Drill, hammer, saw, chisel, ratchet, and so on.

The vehicle, bucket and arms, could be operated remotely from the crew cab, from a geosynchronous orbit, or from choreographed computer command lines.

This vehicle would be powered hydrogen fuel cells that can be recharged infinitely by photovoltaic solar cells.
