Out of This World: Sons and Daughters, Not Orphans

Martin, Malachi B.
July 1975
National Review;7/18/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 27, p776
The article discusses a religious perspective to the issue of life in outer space. According to the author, one will soon find that the humanness of Jesus Christ has already bridged the "gap" between the near-future Space human, as distinct from the Earth human. The author reports that on July 15, 1975 the Soviets will launch into orbit a two-man Soyuz spacecraft from Baikonur in Soviet Kazakhstan. Seven and a half hours later, the Americans will launch a three-man Apollo craft from Cape Canaveral. According to the author, wherever and whenever human beings exist or go they are unchangeably sons and daughters of that divine Father, because of that Son's sacrifice
