A Legacy Like No Other
October 22, 2013Bruce Murray's legacy will live for as long as we explore the universe. EVERY picture that we marvel at, learn from, or use as cmputer background or screen saver owes its existence to the demand that Dr. Murry placed on all missions to the planets. It must carry a camera. Every probe or rover that we send out to explore the universe sends home pictures just like we do when we visit any place. No matter if it is grandma's or the Grand Canyon we take pictures to commemorate the trip. With Dr. Murray's vision we are taking pictures of where we go no matter it is by car, train, plane, or rocket. Peace be with you Dr. Murray, and thanks for the photos.
In 2016, The Planetary Society’s LightSail program will take the technology a step further.
