Yes We Can!

In my teenage years, the cold war era threw a cold blanket over thoughts about the future. The appearance of Star Trek gave me hope that the future could be very exciting indeed. I firmly believe that Star Trek was, and still is, a potent message that we are capable of space exploration. Even at the age of 71, I would like to help build a permanent base on the Moon. The base would be very useful now but, as it drifts away from Earth, it would become a message in a bottle to any creatures who encounter it.
