"Today the human race is a single twig on the tree of life, a single species on a single planet. Our condition can thus only be described as extremely fragile, endangered by forces of nature currently beyond our control, our own mistakes, and other branches of the wildly blossoming tree itself. Looked at this way, we can then pose the question of the future of humanity on Earth, in the solar system, and in the galaxy from the standpoint of both evolutionary biology and human nature. The conclusion is straightforward: Our choice is to grow, branch, spread and develop, or stagnate and die."
Robert Zubrin, Entering Space, 1999

I apologize for posting to the entire list messages meant for one person, but as a result, I have received many questions about my high school honors geology course that I have developed in collaboration with UCLA. For any of you interested in a high school honors course for which students can receive college credit at a local university, email me  at [log in to unmask]
