Vision + Determination

I'm a child of WWII, born in 1942. I became a dedicated "spacer" in 7th grade geography class. "Cold War" realities made it clear that, if we had a future, it would be unlikely to include space exploration. In 1966, Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek implied that we would have a future and that it would include space exploration. The 1969 manned moon landing provided additional encouragement. The value of TPS is that it has an intelligent vision and the determination to pursue it.
