Memories: The old Ways

On a local bus I was asked by a man, where I was going. I said, I was heading for the place in the hills where they are building the probes that fly to other planets.

He told me that the place isn’t open to the public; they are also building targeting systems for ICBMs. It is a kind of military installation with all that entails. I must have looked really disappointed. He smiled at me and said not to worry. He is working at the place and can get me inside.

He gave me a tour, showed me some of the probes, the camera system he was working on, and we even sneaked into the control room, where the pictures from outer space were coming in – line by line.

Sometimes, you have to be naive to make a dream come true.
