Robert A Heinlein took me into Space

Heinlein took many of us into Space with his stories of heroes and ordinary people forced to live in non-ordinary Places. The math he used to explain the process of escaping from planetary gravity was Spot on and inspiring. A huge admirer of planetary discovery and all other science disciplines. He brought Real Science to us as he used them to create believable scenes. He made it possible to see us live long term in space or on other planets as settlers. It will happen. I changed as space was made real for me. it still is.
