September 5, 2013I never personally new Bruce Murray or co-founder Carl Sagan but I greatly attribute both to my fascination and love of our solar system and the whole known universe. This love of God's creation led me at one point in my life to join The Planetary Society as charter member when it was first formed by Bruce and Carl. These men's vision to bring advocacy and understanding to the world for planetary exploration has added greatly to my love of exploration, here on Earth and on towards the calling stars in the heavens. Great men like Bruce Murray do this for his fellow man. RIP Bruce Murray.
In 2016, The Planetary Society’s LightSail program will take the technology a step further.
