My Sky

We’re looking for images you’ve taken of your sky—whether those images are of galaxies captured through a telescope or perhaps pictures of an incredible night sky, an eclipse, a star party, or a rocket launch. We can’t guarantee that we’ll publish every image and story—but we will look at each and every one and will showcase as many as possible here on our website and a few might make it to our magazine, The Planetary Report. We look forward to seeing your Sky. Share Your Sky »

Rejoining after a long lapse

I first saw Carl Sagan in the late 70s at the University of Toronto's Bronowski Lecture, and again later at some seminars after the Viking Mars mission. Then in the 80s "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage" inspired me to join TPS.

About 6 years ago I started to become aware of new and emerging technologies that could make space colonization a real possibility for mankind. 3D printing, advances in nuclear fusion research technology, and building a space elevator with carbon nanotubes are some of the many that caught my attention.

I feel that we must master the power of the Sun (nuclear fusion) if ... more »
