To become a truly planetary society
January 29, 2014
Space is one of the frontiers where nations have been working together. You see that on board the ISS. You see glimpses of it at the planets - where space agencies collaborate with each other's missions. My hope is that this collaboration in space builds the foundation for such collaboration here back on Earth and makes us a truly planetary society.
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.
