To go where no one has been

As a child in war-torn Philippines, where no electricity meant black skies and uncountable stars, I would lie on my back and watch them winking at me, wondering where they all came from, and what else is out there? The Planetary Society joins me, now almost 80 years old, with those who still watch the stars. But now I also have articles that are not totally dumbed-down, and let me be a part of learning and searching for what else is out there.
