By Wally Schirra's Mercury flight I was already seven years old. By time Mariner flew by Mars Dr. Murrays' bold demand for cameras added to my excessive desire to explore space.

Due to the formation of The Planetary Society he helped form, I can help in ways that were never possible prior to the Society coming into existence. Not just myself but all of the countless numbers of people who came to help in space exploration in some way or another. He has built a wonderful path for anyone to wander down and explore while directly or indirectly leaving behind seeds for a positive future for mankind. This positive future avenue was followed by many of us original series Star Trek fans.

Thank you Dr. Murray for all you have done and your ongoing endless path to the future you left for those willing to take up the challenges.
