Collect your pennies and bottle return dimes. Check any return slots on parking meters and vending machines that don’t use credit cards. Send your change to scientists planning to launch robots the size of cell phones to the nearest star system. Mini rockets, mini-explorations that will open like butterflies to the stars. Fueled by lasers sending wands of light to small sails to drive the robots forward. Be a part of seeing a new star system.
Swarms of robots will send pictures as texts. Keep us current on your phone number. We will never sell your number to anyone. Cling to your phones to be first to have scientists text you images of the Alpha-Centauri’s binary stars, its red dwarf. This new form of social security.
See the unknown in your lifetime. Yours. In the palm of your hand.
