Not a space scientist ...but I play one in my mind

Harva Sheeler

December 3, 2012

1948,age 14,female. High school study hall, Orono Maine. Friend gave me his copy of Astounding Science Fiction and that's all it took. Avid sci-fi and non-fiction space science reader. (Walter Cronkite and I were together for all NASA take-offs.)Almost 79 now, retired librarian--but in my heart I'm a member of the staff of NCC-1701 traveling in space where no one has gone 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.
