It all comes together

I was nine years old when sputnik was launched and the Russians became the first in space with a satellite. Since then The Planetary Society has brought the space race, manned flights and every aspect of space near and far together. Giving a visual understanding of what is out "their". The challenge of finding new improved method of searching our system and beyond for "life". We have not yet graduated from the model "T" age and in some ways we have gone back words. Yet even with all this the planetary Society has brought new hope for future space exploration.
