IN elementary school, we were herded into the gym to watch all the manned missions on one television located on the stage. We were also lucky enough to have our school bring in the roving NASA programs. Getting to hold a copy of the last Ranger 7 photo made before impact made me want to be a science teacher. It made me seek out the same types of programs which lead to free NASA workshops for teachers that we were able to bring into our neck of the woods. I am not sure why this one photo rocked my world but it did and I am glad it did!
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.
