My Spark

William Lee Kohler

December 2, 2012

I saw the Star Wars movies as a young adult. Then there was a take off novel from the movies by Alan Dean Foster. Then the summer of 1983 there was a popular science magazine(I think)with pictures of several prospective human deep space interstellar ships from the British Interplanetary Society. I was blown away! I was hooked and later that year when I got an invite from the Planetary Society I joined. Later I also joined the National Space Society and the Mars Society.
