WIS – Should I add This Poem

July 1, 2017

Dear Reader, my sci-fi novel Writings in Science, a History of the Future, is finished and out there for all to read. But in the 2nd ed. should I add this poem?

sew me up
a shinning star
with a helium needle
and hydrogen thread

sew me up
a galaxy cluster
with a stout
gravity ray.

sew me up
all that is
over the voids
and around the edges.

Novel (two poems)

novels meander
with excess fat
short stories are lean
and all is taut.

a novel is
spilled paint
a short story is
a single line.

What a Day (Astronomy Poem)

May 19, 2017

What a day
when he figured it out –
Not a star cluster
within our galaxy
but its own
with another behind it
and another and another
and a field of them
that seemed to stretch
back and back further.

Moon Poem

He made his roof
a magnifying glass.
When stars came out
he could touch each one.
When the Moon came out
he could gather stones.

3D Printers

3D Printer – if you can print something here through a computer, why not something there?

Why not send info for 3D printing, through your computer HERE, through the internet, to create a 3D piece through someone else’s computer / 3D printer THERE.
Let’s say you have a vase in your house. You want to send it to XYZ. You send the instructions on how to recreate it on a 3D printer through the net to the machine at XYZ’s house that prints it up.

You have transported a vase through space.

Now imagine the machines at both ends getting better and better.
You have transported a vase through space almost instantly. What next, food, plants, …

My sci-fi novel, Writings In Science, a History of the Future, by Tom Hendricks, is full of spacey ideas like this. Please check it out at all streaming book sites.
