Yes. We all benefit from these grand adventures.

I think our species is mandated to learn and colonize appropriately.

That gives us something to do until the universe implodes or freezes.

Colonizing the universe is inevitable. It's how we got here.

Perhaps after we solve our problems in this country, and on the planet as a whole, have plenty of resources that we can't find anything better to do with, we could consider space exploration.

Until then, I'd give it a very low priority, personally.

It's very important. Just don't forget your oxygen!

The Tea Party fanatics will continue to slash budgets and deny science, until such time as China starts building orbital installations and a moon base -- then they'll whine about how America is being "beaten."
