Vastness of Space
December 3, 2012
My passion for space began when I began to understand it's vastness; when I realized that the light I was seeing in the stars may have left that star before I was born. The passion was increased by reading books and listening to lectures about the origin and evolution of the universe and knowing we are made of star stuff.
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.
