Calculations

As “little blue” draws near my brain has become more and more restless. What if my calculations are wrong and we can’t stand the gravity of this little blue planet? I mean, the calculations must be correct, but still…no Jörg has been this far away from home.

At least not that we know of…he…he…he. That’s why I must ask all these questions and write down everything I see. Everyone thinks that I’m going mad. Fools! How can they not comprehend that I’m just concerned about their welfare? Every little piece of data can be relevant at some point. How fast can Jens run? How strong can Urho be? How many hairs does Timpa have? This is not how a crazy JÖRG talks, this is how a distinguished scientist would react to a situation such as arriving on a new planet, a planet that may be very different from what my numbers say. Inhale…exhale…inhale…everything is going to be fine, I just need some data to collect. Yes, that will surely take my mind off things. Now, how many meals can Pekka eat in less than an hour…
