We Must Explore!

I’ve created these videos to rally public support for NASA’s program of lunar and planetary exploration. If you believe, as I do, that America must continue to explore the solar system, please visit the Planetary Society’s space advocacy page here.

To mark the 40th anniversary of the last human footsteps on the moon, I look back at Apollo 17’s explorations and explain why I believe the moon is the solar system’s “jewel in the crown,” beckoning us to return.

Geologist Paul Spudis of the Lunar and Planetary Institute explains why, 40 years after the last Apollo landing,  the Moon still beckons scientists and space explorers.

Mars scientist Nathalie Cabrol talks about her passion for exploration and urges America to explore even in tough economic times.

Planetary exploration is in trouble. Massive budget cuts threaten to starve NASA’s planetary program for years to come. I’m fighting back with passion—passion for the incredible adventure that began half a century ago and has given us countless wonders and amazing discoveries. I’ve made this video as a call to action. Please share it with your friends and family. And tell Washington, “We Must Explore!” by going to the Planetary Society’s space advocacy page.
