I became interested in space because of the science fiction novels of the 1940s and 50s. Through them, I realized that other societies were possible, and other "people" were likely to be out there. Because of this, I became a cultural anthropologist,and now hope to hear from SETI. I took an astronomy course at the U. of Michigan. and was delighted to see the Milky Way, and planets in our solar system.
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.
