October 19, 2013My mother used to tell me that my first words (at about age 2) were, "Here, Moon!" So, my interest in astronomy goes back quite a ways ... ;-) I never met Bill Murray, but I want to express my immense gratitude to him for the wonderful images from the space program that have enriched all of our lives. Saturn especially -- from time to time I think of how Galileo was mystified by the image of Saturn in his primitive telescope -- unimaginable! It really makes me wonder what we may be looking at, uncomprehending, today. Thank you so much, Mr. Murray.
The excitement is building! LightSail is counting down to our test launch, set for May 20—and you’re invited.
