Inspire those who can do
December 10, 2013
I was there with Carl and Lou when the society was formed. Chris McKay was a young grad student at CU running the meeting. Then as now the idea is to inspire all the generations with a sense of awe and possibilities. Hopefully some of those will be the people to make things happen. Thinking such as this: The Biological Advantage of Being Awestruck - by @JasonSilva http://vimeo.com/46264514 With all the space activity of the last few years it is time. The industry is reaching a critical mass. It is time to move humanity into a multi-planetary, then multi-stellar, society. Nothing is more important. What I value is all the society members inspiring those around them. Together we can do this.
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.
