Men on the Moon
December 2, 2012
As a young boy in the late '60s we lived in Cocoa Beach, FL. I was lucky enough to see most of the Apollo rockets go off (and a good many of the early shuttle missions as well, later on). I clearly remember when the Apollo 11 mission landed on the moon, going out and looking up at the moon and thinking "there are people up there right now". What kid wouldn't be inspired by something like that?
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.
