I love Space
Russell T. Frizzell
November 21, 2016
As a child I heard talk about Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the Moon and saw the first Viking Lander image of the surface of Mars. These things looked totally amazing and unobtainable from my small Michigan farming town. Then, as a young adult I read many works from Isaac Asimov and Carl Sagan and I became more interested. So I went to college to learn about space and rocketry and I joined The Planetary Society. Today, I am a member of The Planetary Society and the Tacoma Astronomical Society. Tonight the Tacoma Astronomical Society hosts a free public viewing at the Pierce College Science Dome. My vision for the future includes thriving colonies on Mars, the Moon, and Lagrange Point space stations. Human knowledge about the Universe is expanding as fast right now as the space that I love. Let us be part of the adventure together and someday we humans will be visiting the other stars.
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.
