The Voyage of Discovery...60 Years on....

Today marks the 60th anniversary of the destruction of the Japanese City of Nagasaki,following the dropping of the Worlds second Atomic Bomb known affectionately as "Fat Boy".
75,000 people died in the blast, following 100,000 who had died three days previously when the Japanese city of Hiroshima was levelled by the first bomb dropped by the "Enola Gay" B29 Bomber.
The vagaries of the weather had spared the initial target ...a city called Kokura, and what ever one may think about the morality of these events the war was shortened dramatically and no doubt spared hundreds of thousands of lives of both Americans and Japanese.
It has been estimated that the proposed invasion of the Japanese mainland would have caused the deaths of about half a million Americans not to mention similar numbers of the defending forces and civilians. Japan surrendered six days later
Today it is a day of both celebration and regret, for all those families worldwide who were affected by the Second World War.
For myself,whose family were inextricably involved in the hostilites,in the European theatres ,I rejoice that on the returning Space Shuttle Discovery, just a few hours ago, there was a Japanese Astronaut.

Technology divided us and then united us in the quest for Human survival.

In my own way ,and in the way of many colleagues here in Ireland, the pursuit of Human survival is a daily undertaking as we try to instill some skills, some sense and some purpose into our Learner Driver Pupils; attempting to pave the way for them to a long and safe Driving career.
Learning to drive is not quite Astronaut training but does require dedication, committment and a willingness to overcome difficulties by sheer hard slog.
