Contributing to Our Legacy

Derek Wilson

January 29, 2014

What I value most is the opportunity to meaningfully contribute to the exploration of space, which I believe to be the ultimate legacy of our civilization and the best hope for the long term survival of our race. The times we live in will likely prevent most of us from ever becoming space explorers ourselves. However through our continuing political and financial support we can hopefully ensure that future generations finish what we started.
