RE: Why your kids won't land on the Moon
Sure there are higher prioritys, food and shelter etc.. But that has always been a problem and always will be, people are people, but space exploration is more. We use science to get there and once we are there we use science to learn more. Only our generation in the history of the world(as far as we know?) walked on another orbiting planet/moon. Never before, and the guys that did it are still alive, you can ask them about it! Pretty cool stuff and is truly an amazing accomplishment. These exploits of man prove drive and the thirst for knowledge, and it is inspiring and we should go, go, go. The problem is we have an expensive, dangerous method of getting in and out of orbit. Space shuttles designed in the 70s. It cost too much money to keep this thing going the way it is. It should be up to the private sector now, creativity and new looks at "how" we are doing space is the answer. I would like to see us all over the solar system and at high speed!! Go, Man Go.
