We should go into space

David

December 10, 2012



When I was a child, science fiction made me believe we would live an explore the space in the near future. Then I grew up and figured out it was not easy. I started to think that there were more important things here on Earth to solve before investing on going up there. But then I discovered Carl Sagan Cosmos series and also I read a speech from Stephen Hawking for the 50th anniversary of NASA that convinced me that it was important to keep this exploration alive. I decided to join the Planetary Society after reading a Pale Bule Dot from Carl Sagan. The 2012 Venus Transit sight and recording (even though it was just 2 minutes) has been one of my best moments related to astronomy and space. Enjoy the video and excuse me. I was very excited!
