Asimov's Robot novels

Lillian A.Ackerman, Ph. d.

December 7, 2012

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.
