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.
Our Advocacy Program provides each Society member a voice in the process.
Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
