The nook in the Library
December 10, 2012
As the son of parents how were the first of their families to go to college and both achieved the PhD, I was a very early reader. After school before the late bus, I had a favorite nook in the library where my mind soared with Heinlein, Asimov and Clark and on and on. Born in 1946, I was "space traveling" in 1955 as a nine year old at the public library. I got to see rocket development from the cast off V2's to Saturn and the Shuttle. My three children are all engineers. Let's built it and go exploring! GO SpaceX! Go Web scope!
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.
