My Love of Space
November 28, 2012
Ever since I was a child,I enjoyed reading about the solar system and other planets. We know a lot more nowadays than we did back then. I was only nine or ten when the Russians sent their first man into space. Now with so much being discovered, my enthusiasm has also increased many times over. I believe space really is the new frontier, not only in the distance involved but it really does provide clues of our origin, even about the Earth itself. The resources found in space have already proven useful to benefit us and as long as we don't abuse them, who knows what the possibilities they will bring.
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.
