I'm thrilled to be on the Advisory Board for 'The Mars Generation', the nonprofit that was launched yesterday by Abigail Harrison (Astronaut Abby) and Nicole Harrison. Its mission is to renew investment in space exploration. Abby is now a college freshman at Wellesley. She's been doing great work raising awareness of spaceflight since she was 13 years old. The new nonprofit will multiply her efforts and take it to the next level.
