Protection for Earth & Humanity as Human Horizons Rise

What is at stake - Earth and Humanity
The Time for Action is NOW.

  
           Astronaut John Young, famed for his Gemini, Apollo, and numerous Shuttle exploits, said at the 20th National Space Society meeting in May 2001:
“The greatest achievement of the human race for the 21st century is ahead -- learning to live and work in other places in the solar system. The long-term benefit of that quest is the preservation of our species.
         From what I know about impacts, sooner or later we're going to get taken out. The problem right now is that we don't know when that 'sooner or later' is. It could be tomorrow…it could be 10,000, or a hundred thousand years from now. The numbers say Earth is likely to take a hit from an average asteroid or comet nearly 0.6 mile wide, larger or smaller in diameter in the next 50 years.

        A giant wallop would set civilization back 10,000 years.

       The human exploration of space is what it's all about, as far as I'm concerned.  I say let's get on with it because we may not have a lot of time!"
