A little progress is better than no progress

Joel Goldman

December 11, 2013

I envision star systems with their planets that have features similar to the planets in our solar system, with similar compositions, and some having different features and compositions than our own.

Some of the distant planets may have microbial life on them, possibly primitive life form, and just maybe, some with advanced life form on them.

There may be some common denominator for all the different solar systems in the Universe. We won't know unless we keep searching and searching for the answers.

Though funding has been cut for space exploration, even a little progress is better than no progress.
