Godspeed James P Hogan

You meant a lot to me.  Inherit the Stars was one of the first serious scifi books I read as a teenager.  The discovery of a 50,000 year old dead astronaut on the moon was a powerful idea.  I also very much liked your book about prejudice in the scientific community: Kicking the Sacred Cow. I hope you get a flyby of Ganymede.  You deserve it.
