I remember that December broadcast of the Christmas Apollo voyage, when the astronauts read from Genesis Chap. 1, and the earth rose above the lunar horizon. That image showed all of us how beautiful, how fragile, our Earth is. I have always wanted to go see what was "Out There", and that image has further strengthened that desire.
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.
