October 14, 2008: Go, Richard!

Richard Garriott, also known as Lord British, is in space now, headed for the International Space Station. This is something he's wanted to do all his life. He's the son of U.S. astronaut Owen Garriott. Richard wanted to be an astronaut too, but his vision was too poor to qualify for the space program. Well . . . he found another way to get up there. Here's his mission blog.

I've known Richard for a loooong time, ever since we were active together in the SCA. I don't see him all that often any more . . . most of the last few times have been either at game conferences, or on airplanes headed to game conferences. It makes me very happy that he's finally living his dream.
