Planetary Imaginings

Gail Held

December 5, 2013

Once our probes reach Proxima Centauri or one of the other Centauri stars, we will beam our sensors toward their planets. There we will find planets with hard scapes like Earth, as well as gaseous planets. Some may have oceans of water, but we may only find planets with primitive plant life. Algae will thrive so it will be a start of something wonderful.The algae will start the process of making O2 and life will evolve. We will travel there one day.

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.
