Knowing about our Universe and how we fit in
December 10, 2013
I've always had a curiosity about the heavens and what was beyond ourselves and how we fit into the whole scheme of things. By reading your articles and others, I have a great appreciation for our planet and, since there is something BEYOND ourselves, tend to be more humble and less into "myself" like so many of our friends/families and others are and to focus on something beyond ourselves and space is the answer as the more we learn about what lies out there, the more we learn about ourselves, our world, what the dangers are as well as the rewards and makes us appreciate our planet that much more plus what we should impart to others. Unfortunately, as the gov't decreases efforts to learn more about our universe, the more the rest of us have to take up the helm and educate people and explore the universe to not only save our planet but mankind as well. It's not about global warming, putting in more windmills, etc., it's about our planet and how we fit into it as well as make it a better place to live
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.
