From imagination to passion

Gernot Semmer

December 2, 2012

I think it's one pic in a french comic named 'Luc Orient': terrestrians are asked for help by human like aliens. While in their spaceship one of them opened a shield to explain that there are countless stars with countless planets with life on it. *bing* - got me! After this I've read a german SF pulp, other SF, science books on space. Besides my job I'm a volunteer guide at a public observatory in Nuremberg, Germany.
