A Spacey Head

I believe that the most important thing we humans can do is to explore our universe. Since even before Carl Sagan's 'Cosmos', listening or reading about space, or peering through my dad's telescope, always made my mind feel like it was flying through space, too. From a time even before that, before Star Wars, before reruns of Star Trek, I remember my mom showing pictures from the Mercury program that were featured in full color in our old World Book Encyclopedia set. The images were bold and leaping from the page. Things were never quite the same after that.
