Greetings space explorers. Last week, I traveled to Cape Canaveral and sat in a spacecraft assembly buildingâ€“ very cool, wide open, precisely laid out space with a polished floor. The President of the United States announced a new plan, a new initiative to take humans to another world. We’ll go to the places in space, where the gravity of the Earth, Moon, and Sun are in balance with the spacecraft’s flight along the Earth’s orbitâ€“ the Lagrange points. We’ll go to an asteroid. We’ll do this with people. As we get better and better at it, we’ll send people to Mars. There we can work to answering the age old questions, where did we come from? And, are we alone?
