For a number of years this website has been on the
Internet with the goal of reminding people how frail humanity's hold is
on this planet, and the many ways that humanity as well as most of the
other species, could be wiped out.
Approximately 65,000,000 years ago, apparently a
huge meteorite created what is now the Gulf of Mexico. In the process
it destroyed the most dominant species on the planet at that time, the
If a meteorite of that size would hit the earth
today, of course humanity would be wiped out as well as most other
species. Dr. Stephen Hawking pointed out some time ago that for these
very reasons, displayed on this website, that humanity establish
colonies on the other planets in our solar system, as well as on our own
satellite, the moon.
Our ex-president, George Bush, was an enthusiastic
supporter of this idea and set aside a sum in NASA for exactly this
purpose. A substantial portion of the $17 billion NASA budget, was
allocated for this purpose.
Barack Obama has been less enthusiastic about this
idea, because he obviously is not a scientist, and his expertise is in
Chicago politics. However to give him credit he has not reduced the
NASA budget of $17 billion. He has rightly decided that civilian
commercial projects should do the job. We have recently joined this
effort by helping to found a new venture called Lunar City, with the
