Hi, and keep up the good work. My question concerns the ill-effects of long distance plane flights, the lower leg cramps or tightness that people are warned about (wear special socks, get up every couple of hours and walk around, etc). How do long-distance military pilots handle this, or the commercial pilots you know. Do you have any tips for this flight effect on human biology that people may not be familiar with. I'm likely taking a long intercontinental flight in the next few months, so any "professional pilot" tips would be helpful. Thanks.
However, in the absence of proof, I'm a skeptic.

Thanks for your post. Good to correspond with a self described oddball.
Yes, NASA put the Surveyor spacecraft on the moon in the sixties entirely by remote control, and have run many missions to Mars and beyond the same way.
Many technologies in the wrong hands could be used for mischief, but that has always been true. The original Pearl Harbor happened with 1940s technology.
