Science fiction writers like Heinlein, Asamov, Bradberry and then along came Carl Sagan. I still have my copy of "Intelligent life in the Universe". He was instrumental in starting the Planetary Society, I became and still am a charter member. Somewhere there was Cosmos which was earth shaking and awesome with the astro photography, WOW. Then on to "Contact". When my son was born I had to name him after my heroes and the name with the most inclusion is Isaac. I am a space cadet, don't know if I will ever get to get of this rock into space, but it is OK, we have satellites sending back great pictures.
Our Advocacy Program provides each Society member a voice in the process.
Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
