'The Biggest Step' - by Frank Hettick - 2008 - $525

 

The first expedition to another world - as astronauts explore the surface of their home-planet's single moon!

These explorers have succeeded in the long journey from their far-off home-world, hanging watchfully in the night sky. They have traveled in their sleek, needle- nosed spaceship to this rocky-frozen moon - because it has 'always been there'!

With this new accomplishment - and with a safe return to their own world - their civilization will now hopefully be poised and encouraged to undertake the loftiest of goals, the exploration of other moons and planets within the local system.

Only a small percentage of habitable planets in the galaxy have a moon that constantly hangs in the sky - appearing as a beacon and eventually as a goal that would encourage the intelligence and imaginations to reach upward toward!

Without a moon to reach for - civilizations would be without incentive or imagination! But with a moon - with such a recognizable goal capable of encouraging and exciting it's efforts outwards - that is all the difference!

Peoples without a moon in their sky should be pitied - for they are missing the first step! Indeed - the 'Biggest Step'!
