Visions of futures past
November 26, 2012
When I was a kid, i would sit on the living room floor with a neighbor friend, and draw spaceships...and robots and alien vistas. We were waiting for the future! Some futures have come and gone...We've seen the dust on the moon and the sands on Mars! There is so much more waiting out there. I think the most remarkable development would be the discovery of other life forms in our solar system, whether on Mars, Europa, Titan or other hidden corner. That's worth waiting for...and I hope to be around.
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.
