exploration has always fascinated me. For several recent space missions,
there has been the opportunity for the general public to submit names
and, in one case, drawings, that were then sent on CDs, microchips or
DVDs into space. This way, my name has been sent to Titan, the Moon,
Mars and to the Comets Tempel 1 and Wild 2. It is also on its way to
Pluto where it will arrive in 2015.

is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and are wanderers still.
We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean.
We are ready at last to set sail for the stars."
