Mankind's first step is a self-sustaining, manufacturing base on the moon. The base serves as a source of resources for plant Earth, and a launching point for further space exploration. Further exploration including: expeditionary manned probes of Mars and asteroids, robust robotic probes to the inner planets Venus and Mercury, and robust robotic probes to the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.
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.
