Why I've added space images

My redesign of the Web site includes a daily "NASA Image of the Day." I happen to like images from space (I often use them for wallpaper for my computers), but this is also a nod to Robert Anton Wilson, who spent much of his life arguing for migrating the human race from Earth to space. Sample quote: "On a planet that increasingly resembles one huge Maximum Security prison, the only intelligent choice is to plan a jail break."

The move to space hasn't happened as quickly as Wilson wanted, but I'm encouraged by the rise of private rocket companies such as SpaceX.
