today, tomorrow, eternity... ?

The saga of life and death continues to hog headlines, moving to another part of the world… the health of the Pope deteriorates. It will be interesting to understand how and who decides on life (and death… remember Catholicism is pro-life) issues for an invalidated Pope. Three Indian Cardinals are amongst the clergy eligible to vote to elect the next Pope.

With an economy driven by wars, it is no surprise that the US is now offering the F-18 (F/A-18 E/F) aircrafts to India, in conjunction with the proposed renewal of F-16 deliveries to Pakistan.


The F/A-18 E/F (Super Hornet) is an all-weather attack-fighter with adaptations for naval aircraft carrier-bound operations. Importantly, it is technically superior to the F-16, variants of which were deployed as early as 1979.

Discussions on war and Pakistan inevitably bring up the K-word. Did you read the Brown Haze story in the TOI today ?

NASA is preparing for its first space shuttle launch since Columbia burned up on re-entry more than two years ago.

Continuing on space technology, a technical review has suggested de-commissioning of the Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble opened new frontiers in visual astronomy, providing astonishing visuals of objects never visible from the Earth’s surface.

Here's a deal: India buys the F-18s AND Hubble. US reduces trade deficit and India could turn that eye in the sky on Pakistan. In fact, reversing the Hubble could have the same effect as focusing a magnifying glass on ants... look out General ;^)
