Leaving the Rock: The Story of Humanity's Destiny in Space
Leaving the Rock: The Story of Humanity's Destiny in Space is a fantastic tale that begins with the earliest human thought of a plurality of worlds to an alien contact made by a human-sent robot trillions of light-years from Earth. Between these two extremes of time, visitors will encounter forty journal entries, conceived by imagination, of the people who collectively contributed to the dream and reality of reaching space. This site also contains supplementary lessons about astronomy and spaceflight, an interactive section that contains "Who Wants to be a Rocketeer?", and a forum where visitors can post their own made-up journal accounts and interact with each other.
