My passion for space, from TV

Hugh Caley

November 28, 2012

I think my passion for space was literally prompted by Star Trek, the original series, 3 seasons on NBC in the mid-60s. It was colorful, and interesting, and although the writers weren't generally scientists, they were science readers. From them I heard terms like space warp, anti-matter, etc., and from then on I was hooked on space science.

It also showed an Earth without war, without racism, without poverty or disease. Heady stuff.

I think a lot of people were inspired by that show ;)
