Brent Spiner and Robert Picardo are to Planetary Resources what Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura) has been to the NASA recruitment program since the 1970s.

Spiner and Picardo will help the Planetary Resources to institute a global initiative to allow teachers and students in classrooms, as well as the general public, to access their own and NASA’s volunteered resources for use in studying actual celestial bodies. Now you can visit space without leaving the ground!

Planetary Resources opened a Kickstarter initiative to raise $1,000,000 for telescopes for use by students, teachers and the public and they received half a million dollars in their first 24 hours! people are excited about this project. And soon, the American public will have access to these telescopes and data gathered from them. Author Sir Arthur C. Clarke would be thrilled that his own concept of the communications satellite has progressed to such a point.

See who else is helping with this humanitarian and educational effort: Space Exploration For All.
