Let's do Interstellar Space
November 26, 2012
Let’s send a robotic spacecraft to the nearest star. Why wait? If we started next year, with a five or ten year development, we could have a spacecraft at the Alpha Centauri system within the 21st century or so. Imagine what the spacecraft would tell us about interstellar space. Imagine the impact on humanity; knowing we are traveling to another star! Let’s know the Solar System, and build great observatories too……but let’s have a real adventure to experience: let’s do interstellar space!!
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.
