RE: Why your kids won't land on the Moon
Space travel can never be; Einstein proved it with his work. Impossible to exceed the speed of light; there cannot be a "warp speed". Star Trek and it's ilk is nothing but a fantasy. Even at near light speed, the closest star would take more than 6 years to reach. To find what? Nothing more than exists in this planetary system? Where the most amenable planet, Mars, makes the Antarctic in dead winter look like Bermuda? Earth is our Island Home, a fragile, tiny lifeboat in an infinite ocean of desolation. Nothing we can find in the universe would be more wonderful than what we already have. We need to treasure and care for it, heal its wounds and our own. We should do this before wasting our energy, time and treasure on fantasies that cannot come to fruition.
