I remember when the Soviet craft landed on Venus and managed to survive the lead-melting,acid corrosive atmosphere long enough to transmit this. Although I was disappointed to see that this was not Bradbury's tropical planet, getting the image back to earth seemed to mean that anything was possible if we put our imagination to it.
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.
