A friend pointed me to this TED talk today.
In it the author is talking about how it is important to write more than one story about a people or people will have stereotypes about them because they know so little about their culture. Well the same is true about the future of humans in space. People seem to have only one or two futures.
One – Like in Star trek -Something miraculous happens like benevolent aliens (Vulcans in this case) gift us with star drive so that we can go to the stars.
Two – Humans are violent and stupid, so we blow ourselves up and go into a dark age.
Which future do you want?
I chose a third option. We use our Brains and our logic and go out into the solar system and colonize it with people who raise families and succeed?
I want to tell that story.
I made a kickstarter campaign to raise money to tell the story of a girl and her family moving to the moon to live. I need your help. Please support my project, or if you cannot, find a way to spread this link to someone who will, because the world needs more optimistic stories, and I want my children to read about a future that will want to live in.
Thanks for your Help
