Latecomer to a passion for space

I've always had some interest in space, especially since Sputnik and Apollo. But I'm now 82, and it was reading the book Destination Mars this spring that ignited my current passion for the field. As a result, I've read other books and lots of websites, given three talks on Mars to local groups (including one group of young kids, one group of adults, and one group of senior citizens) and had four articles on space published in our local paper (the Patriot Ledger, published in Quincy, MA). I'm trying to spread the word!
