Goals For My Lifetime
November 19, 2012
Three things in no particular order: First, I'd like to see a deep space observatory / science laboratory established on the moon. Second, sample and data telemetry of Europa and other satellites of the outer planets. Even the planning for robotic missions to the planets themselves. Third, peopled missions to land on asteroids/NEOs and the decision to send humans to Mars. I hope I live long enough to witness any of these. Needless to say, having the chance to leave Earth's orbit would a blast too.

Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
