Here’s an interesting discussion that came up on an earlier post.
Kathy: The space program is stupid. That money should have been spent on something more useful.
Me: I’m glad we went to the moon, but I don’t see a need to go back. I’m very excited about unmanned space exploration and astronomy, though.
Morticia: Manned space exploration has already had some payoffs, and it will be very important for the long-term future of humanity.
