Ah, good ole Adams. I remember reading his books. I was in the copy-cat stage of my life, wanting to do everything my brother did, thus I joined Air Cadets and played in the band and read sci-fi. I also pretended I knew what my brother was saying when he talked about cold fusion.
So, yes Adams brought a brother and sister together and of course I emailed my brother as soon as I heard a new movie was being made on the Hitchhiker’s series.
Now asteroid 2001 DA42 (look at all the symbolism) will be named for Douglas Adams. Now, if we could only find that asteroid in our telescopes!
