What got me started was the Carl Sagan, Cosmos TV series. I then bought all his books, then bought everyone else's boooks,then subscribed to weekly and monthly science magazines and journals,and now I'm a science junkie. I cannot learn enough. My highpoint was crashing a Carl Sagan reception following his presentation at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. I got to speak with him and get his autograph on my copy of Cosmos. That was over 20 years ago.
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.
