I believe our future is in the stars

As a kid I lived across from a drive-in movie and saw movies like "The Conquest of Space" (1955) a movie made almost like a documentary about a mission to Mars. It awed with the majesty and drama of expeditions to the greatest frontier. A space program would unite the world in heart and spirit. I cannot accept the hiatus that has existed in travel to space
