Love and the Stars
December 2, 2012
When I was a college student at Mankato State I elected to take a course in Astronomy as part of my science major. During the class I met a pretty girl and I convinced her that it would be in our best interests to seek a dark lonesome hillside to study the stars. To my surprise she agreed. We went to a spot I knew, studied the stars and listened to a disc jockey spin big band music. I still love the stars and she married the disc jockey
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.
