I believe that space activities are impacting society through…
.......... adjusting our population’s perspective of the idiom “the world.” The impact of space activities is nothing less than the galvanizing of hope and imagination for human life continuum into a future of infinite possibility.

Images introduce us to multitudes of moons, to red soil of once-faint images now remotely sensorial terrain, to stars and galaxies; they broaden our field of vision and engage understanding of an immensity of which our Earth is only a small part.

Space activity has the fundamental byproduct of social coalition. When given a broader perspective of goals to accomplish, rather than turning upon one another in conflict, cultural differences translate into harmonized concert effort toward human triumph.

Looking up and out, how can we not respect this ever-vigilant cognizance that distinguishes us: the capability to envision, to dream, and to invent? the ability to ponder ourselves? and be aware of our existence on the outer arm of a spiral galaxy in an immeasurable ocean of stars? Cognizance is our crest. Are we not creatures, despite our shortcomings, to be regarded with awe and reverence? And the endeavors to further comprehend the mystery of our world, the Cosmos, among the most worthy in our evolution?

If humans are maligned as aggressively motivated, reflection reveals that our need for opposition and obstacle to trigger incentive is not in itself dishonorable, rather a misapplied quality when it aims at incorrect targets for lack of a more worthy opponent.

Infinity is a territory toward which the inherent human impetus of conquest can be productively directed. Space is as infinite as we can imagine, and expanding this perspective is what adjusts humankind’s focus on conquering our true enemies, the formidable foes: ignorance and limitation.
