My trip through space

Gerald Alderson

December 2, 2012

In the 1950's when I was a child I would go outside lie in the grass and look up at the stars. I imagined myself riding a spaceship through the stars and seeing what they were. I read about astronomy and space travel. I particularly remember the writings of Willie Ley. When Carl Sagan did that program in the 80's about the travel through space, it was like I had been there before.
