      Hi again, TR-8R! I loved the new Star Wars film (hope you enjoyed it, too). Rey’s food rations and other little bits of tech looked really interesting, and perhaps one day we could have something similar (the rations reminded me of something we already have, Smash, those dehydrated mashed potato flakes). And I really hope that at some point in the future space flight will be more of an everyday thing. 😀

      Yes following on from Delma’s comment. It would be great if space travel was an everyday occurance. Remember, a 150 years nobody had ever flown in an aircraft. Now it is an everyday event.
