Planetary Society - So Sorry for your loss!
Richard A. Patton
August 30, 2013Thanks to Bruce and Carl Sagan, I found myself involved in the aero space industry. Carl's ground breaking series "COSMOS" and the Planetary has inspired 10's of thousand of folks like me to embrace space exploration. I have been a member of the Planetary Society since its inception and I continue to do so today. Bruce and Carl were my heroes as a young man and I honor and respect them both to this day. MY kids are constantly complaining about my use of quotes from COSMOS in daily conversation. I had the privilege of meeting Cark as he visited the Fells Planetarium in Philadelphia. He and Dr. IM Levet were have a discussion and i recognized both. The legacy left by Bruce and Carl still continues to inspire young people. They are now together again in heaven, God bless them both.
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.
