A small step

A small step

For me was a turning moment I will never forget. I was eleven years old and I remember exactly where I was, I remember exactly with whom I was. All my closest relatives, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandpa and grandma, the sense of awe and expectation. I remember clearly those black and white, quite difficult to figure out images on my family TV set. And over all, I remember it was at that time my passion for space started.

I was completely convinced that night, that humans would walk on the moon as a common thing in my lifetime. I am sure many did that night. Not likely for me, but closer and closer every year, in good part because of the Planetary Society. God speed guys!

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.
