Jim, I’m 91 years old and have been a reader of “science fiction” since before the term was invented………….grew up with all the early writers, and was captivated by all the romance, adventure and visions. As I have grown older and become more seriously concerned with what we are doing to our home planet, I find myself wondering if the earth is heading towards the conditions which are evident on Mars today.
One significant problem exceeds all other concerns; OVERPOPULATION. Unless a solution can be found to reverse this mad rush to destruction, the human race will not survive to any of those INFINITE VISIONS.
Space rarely makes a strong showing in national elections, despite the major state of transition NASA finds itself in today.
Help us catalog and source statements made by candidates referring to civil space issues.
