A Possible Future....
November 26, 2012
I believe that all humans can easily be provided for by the resources to be found right here in our Star System. There is very little that can not be done with current technology to turn man into a multi-planet species. Many asteroids and planets can be mined for any needed resources (gas, liquids or solids). Life is very resilient. Man is extremely adaptable. As long as we can overcome our self-destructive tendencies, the grand future of man is all but guaranteed.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
