This year’s theme, The Future is in Focus, reflects the growing progress of our space exploration program.  We have all read the science fiction books and heard and seen many predictions about the future. While some of those ideas were far out, some are now within reach. No flying cars, but we have the dawn of self-driving cars. We haven’t made it to another star, but we are going to Mars! There are GPS receivers in our pockets and we can talk face-to-face with people around the world on our phones. Technological innovation has brought us this far and Colorado is right in the heart of it all. We are starting to put our past’s future into focus. Challenges abound on our journey, but focus and innovation will see us through.
