did someone say once that in space no one can hear you scream? Would that be the same for the wife's constant bitching? If I sent her to outer space I couldn't hear it anymore.

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."

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

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.

What do you do when the world is going to Hell in a handbasket, Road Trip! Geez, we don't have to impress/scare anyone anymore. I could care less if there is life out there somewhere. If there is we would be doing them a favor if we just left them alone.

Leave it to that wacky Sir Branson 'Virgin' guy. It will be novel until he has his Challenger moment.

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

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

Future space exploration will just a expand of the colonization of the whole universe and drive it towards a dim and dismal future of exploitation of its resources and peoples.
We must halt the the irreversible tide of species destruction.
We must focus on the earth,
