I had a longer vacation recently. I was well prepared – backlog of things to achieve, some extra daily routines, places to see, people to meet, all that stuff. The results were, well, surprising: none. Yes, you got that right. I did nothing of what I planned to do. And, damn, I’m glad that things turned out like this.Read more

While the words in the title were never actually said in Apollo 13 control room, they are now forever interlocked with space travel. Many things can happen and are accepted – except for this one.
