A copy of the Foundation trilogy is headed out towards Mars on Elon Musk's Tesla roadster. Cue Hari Seldon (and Kathy Selden):
"All I Do Is Scheme For You"
ttto "All I Do Is Dream Of You" (Nacio Herb Brown/Arthur Freed)
New lyrics Jeff Urs 2008
All I do is scheme for you;
Your children, too.
Empire gone, you'll still go on,
The centuries through.
But that'll be an age of dearth,
Thirty thousand winters worth:
Empire, downfall, dark age, rebirth.
But that's just wrong; it's far too long
Trapped in that blight.
Psychohistory solves the mystery,
Shortens the night.
Foundation One, Foundation Two,
Now a thousand years'll do.
All I do is scheme for you,
My whole life through!
