Concerning your question last night as to whether I would be disappointed
if my name is the only thing that gets into space. Yes I would be
disappointed if that were the case. However, currently many of the
factors that would determine if I could get into space are beyond my
control (this is not to say I potentially can not affect them). Therefore
I wish to participate and support space exploration through groups like
The Planetary Society.
I also feel that someday someone will recover that microdot and my name
will be among those who supported our first steps towards Mars. I have a
story idea related to this that I am working on. I think that Virus
should have a positive and strong stance towards space exploration. What
do you think?
