Ray Bradbury turns 90 this weekend and the legendary science fiction author thinks its time we go back to the moon.

The legendary author, who recently said that he hates eReaders, is now critiquing President Obama because he is not pushing space exploration.

The LA Times reports: “‘He should be announcing that we should go back to the moon,’ says the iconic author, whose 90th birthday on Aug. 22 will be marked in Los Angeles with more than week’s worth of Bradbury film and TV screenings, tributes and other events. ‘We should never have left there. We should go to the moon and prepare a base to fire a rocket off to Mars and then go to Mars and colonize Mars. Then when we do that, we will live forever.’”

In honor of his upcoming birthday, some fans are making videos. This video is an erotic love letter to the writer.
