“Hello World” are the traditional characters of a programmer’s first computer program, or a blogger’s first post. Since both meanings apply here, I will add a third significance to the phrase. I’m sitting in the conference room for the Canadian Space Society’s Annual Summit 2013, in Ottawa. I have always been interested in space travel but know so little about it. Therefore, this is the first step in my personal journey to space, a journey that I expect will lead me to a different understanding of our beautiful little world, and its place in the universe. Much more to follow.
