On February 6, 2018, I found myself shoulder to shoulder with two of my heroes: Bill Nye on the left, Buzz Aldrin on the right. Our eyes were fixed on the first vertical Falcon Heavy rocket. Figuring the world's most powerful rocket might send me flying backwards once the countdown hit zero, I gripped the railing so tightly I started to lose the feeling in my fingertips.
Before the State of the Union address, Bill Nye and Planetary Society staff met with sixteen sitting members of Congress. At each meeting they had the opportunity to talk about the importance of space exploration and scientific research.
