Who are we? We are YOU!

We are dads, moms, grandparents, teachers, kids, scientists, engineers, and space geeks. We are those who reach out into the Universe to seek answers to those deep questions: Where did we come from, and are we alone?

We are wowed and awed by the discovery of new things, the mysteries of science, the innovations of technology, the bravery of astronauts, and by the stunning images sent back to us from other worlds.

We know that space exploration is vital to humankind...and it is just plain fun!

The Future of Deep Space Exploration - A Mission to the Stars

by Greg Young

July 10, 2019

The history of space exploration has been accelerating ever since Galileo developed his first telescope, pointed it toward the stars some four centuries ago, and published his findings in a small book titled Sidereus Nuncius, "The Starry Messenger”. Since then, new and ever-improving technology was invented, and enormously creative astronomers, astrophysicists and space scientists have learned and made exciting discoveries about our vast surroundings and the extraordinary place in which we live—space. While some devote important time to observe, learn, discover and understand those things in our comfort zone—the air we breathe here on Earth, the water we drink, the ... more »
