Looking at the sky
December 18, 2012
I was brought up surrounded by radios and airplanes. Looking up at the sky was normal. I can always remember looking for Sputnik and Echo. Then there were meteors. My father and older brother took me and my younger brother to see a solar eclipse. And we watched all the space shots: Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. I have never stopped looking at the sky. The wonder of our own planet has always fascinated me as well. We learn so much about here by looking out there...
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.
