Whatever floats your boat...

The book title is, "The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence" by John Billingham and John Wolfe of the NASA Ames Research Center
I know I ran a few seconds over but HEY I did two responses in one video.

Aw, man! This is great!! I am SUCH a fan of Sagan's and I can totally relate to your thoughts while peering out into that vast mystery of a sky.

It makes sense in terms of the only way we can go...although there's an argument for the deepest seas we have yet to explore (we'll get there a lot faster than humans landing on Mars, though).

Thanks for this great response!

@Syd I fear for the creatures in the seas unless we can get the kind of treaties between nations to go gently with the new species we encounter deep in the ocean. But there is some hope we can do it the right way.

@Christine Thank you very much

Great points - if only in our lifetimes.

@Ken I hope I can live to see humans make the first journey to Mars.

Interesting! Cool work your Father did too!

@photo2010 Yes it was cool but the security clearance only allowed the family to wait in the parking lot so I never actually saw what he did. He only talked about some of it. I got loads of press and PR stuff from NASA. My dad always brought that home for me.

So interseting! What a great childhood and life.

@Mango Maybe I should do a vid about the chemistry lab I had in the basement when I was 11.

Hey, Chuck, I had a chemistry lab in the basement when I was 11, too! I'd love to see a video about yours. =)
