Sailing the new ocean of space
December 6, 2013
I have no idea what awaits us in the countless solar systems ringed with planets across our galaxy. I am sure whatever I can imagine won't even come close to the reality that we will find. I hope we discover new life finding out we are not alone in the Cosmos. It would be nice to find some friends and finally get our species out of the cradle and out across the universe.
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.
