You found me!  This little corner of the internet where you can find out about the interests of me, Mike O’Hara. 

The 1960’s was the “Golden Age” of manned spaceflight. Before smartphones, personal computers, and the internet, it was the idea of rockets, satellites, robotic probes, and sending humans into space that was THE technology that marveled young minds and caused fear in rival countries.

Like most kids born into that era where I wanted to be an astronaut, but no matter how old I get making it space will always be my dream.

I keep the flame of space burning by writing for my blog titled ”The Conquest of Space”. There, you will find my thoughts on topics related to the past and future of space exploration. I cover a wide range of topics and they are informative for both the space aficionado and the novice. 

I am also trying to stir interest in bringing a space history museum to Charlotte, North Carolina, birthplace of moonwalker Charlie Duke.  In total, fourteen astronauts and one NASA Administrator are native Carolinians. The goal of the museum is to inspire future generations while recognizing the contributions of Carolinians to our space history.

In 2015,  I was the Republican General Candidate on the balltot for Charlotte City Council District 4. Here is my official campaign website and like it on Facebook at  

When I really have spare time, I am writing my first novel.  “Killing Time” is a science fiction work that combine two of my favorite subjects -- World War II History and Science.  Ninety thousands words so far and climbing daily!
