Dinerman Lauds Heinlein in Wall Street Journal

Taylor Dinerman wrote a nice tribute to Robert Heinlein in today's Wall Street Journal. He concludes:

In another hundred years, it will be interesting to see if the nuclear-powered spaceships and other technological marvels he predicted are with us. But nothing in his legacy will be more important than the spirit of liberty he championed and his belief that "this hairless embryo with the aching oversized brain case and the opposable thumb, this animal barely up from the apes will endure. Will endure and spread out to the stars and beyond, carrying with him his honesty and his insatiable curiosity, his unlimited courage and his noble essential decency."

Mr. Dinerman writes a weekly column for the Space Review.

Nice to see Taylor and Jeff Foust's publication getting broader exposure.

Any idea if there was a link printed in the hardcopy version?

As a pre-Star Trek science fiction reader, anything that informs the public of the richness of the genera and the debt we all owe to the Grandmaster is appreciated. "Blowups Happen" is often cited for its prescience, but I would offer "Solution Unsatisfactory" as a much more thoughtful recognition of the magnitude of change with the introduction of nuclear weapons. Pity the Roosevelt Administration failed to note its publication.
