My trip through space
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.
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.
