SPACE: THE FINAL SUBURB 

SPACE: THE FINAL SUBURB

Many people have become familiar with William W. (Bill) Wood through his campaign to save the Memphis Central Library from atheistic communists. Wood is the man responsible for organizing bi-weekly meetings to pray over a work of art which he and his supporters find offensive. But how many folks know about wood's other organization, the National Space Society? According to the Web site www.memspace.org., Wood's group is "dedicated to creating a spacefaring civilization." They are also looking into the development of "air breathing engines" called SCRAM jets to aid in the creation of just such a civilization. So, like Bill Wood's Web site says, "If you are excited about helping to pen the frontier in near-earth orbit, in lunar orbit, on Europa, on Mars, or a spaceport in Memphis, contact billwood@memspace.org."
