Venturing beyond the solar system would not only provide information on planets in other solar systems but it would provide a wealth of information on interstellar space. The forces at work there and the physical bodies encountered would expand our knowledge of the workings of the universe. How thilling! And then there are the wonders of the planets to be explored. The scientific community is continually amazed by new knowledge of our own solar system. Imagine what would await us on planets orbiting other stars.
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.
