It’s Time to Reclaim Space (21 Photos)

Space: a vast, dark wilderness, a wasteland that is of no value to explore, and will cost in excess of $18.6 billion dollars in 2010. That money could be spent on worthy causes like health care, education and social development projects. It is an often repeated argument, and it ignores the fundamental reasons behind space exploration, reasons that transcend squabbles about budget deficits and national debts. With manned missions to the moon and to Mars being discussed, we are nearing a point where mankind will travel farther than ever before. We are set to discover things that were unknown, perhaps fundamentally changing our understanding of Earth, science and even ourselves.

Bacon is always the answer. Currently working towards an MBA with an emphasis in fantasy football. I have friends in spite of myself. Probably the best meat eater in the world. Trying to change the name from Tweeting to Gregging. Recommended by 4 out of 5 people that recommend things. I’m here to avoid friends on Facebook.
