To Boldly Go

Paul Lewis

December 2, 2012

Without doubt my biggest inspiration for my space passion were a TV series and a film. On TV it was the original Star Trek series. A hopeful future where humankind could benefit from all the wonders of science and technology inextricably interwoven with the exploration of space. And 2001: A Space Odyssey revealed the majesty of space, deep and dark mysteries, the sense of wonder and awe. And a future at once unimaginable and incomprehensible. A place where anything was and is possible.
