I would say that a lot of these developments in the world of technology contributed to the economy of our country. Even freeze-dried food was developed by NASA. I'm all for going forward with science. Maybe we'll get a cure for SCI?
    All the spin-off discoveries and benefits attributable to the exploration of space would be multiplied by orders of magnitude by the alternative funding of oceanic exploration - and the oceans are right here. The fact is, we don't need no fux-ing spaceships or stations or bases on Mars or anywhere else but the deep ocean floors of planet Earth.

    We need focus on the many increasing problems on our own home world and starry-eyed heaven fixation is only deepening the illusions imbedded and nurtured by the corporate entities that have lead us down this garden path so far. Yes, they love NASA. Why wouldn't they; that's all part of the fantasy world, America the conquorer/explorer/benefactor dream they pay billions anually for, for very clever marketing people to foist on us.

    Yes, the Earth's oceans are right here so all the better reason not to tamper with one of our most important resources. The slightest changes in our ocean's currents and temperatures can play major havoc with Earth's climate. As mineral resources on land are depleted, mining will undoubtedly increase in our oceans, causing major devastation to natural ecosystems. With dredging, we will see destruction of marine animal habitat. The food potential of our oceans is great but the balance can be delicate.We are already seeing overfishing. The ocean is shared by many countries so it becomes political what any one country decides to do there. We (USA) have only so much jurisdiction there. What are we to do about that? There's so much available in our oceans but I'd rather not destroy them out of greed.
    Space is so much larger than our small planet. It's incomprehensible how large it is. We could get our minerals there and not destroy our Earth. I don't know if I'd want to go to space but I know people who do.
    I do think that you are right that we need to take care of everyone on this Earth. I don't really like greedy corporations either. If there were no wars, think of the money that we'd have to solve hunger and disease.
    Whether we agree or not is a small thing. I have two sons who have taught me to view the universe and it's possibilities with awe.

    I wish that I could find the original picture without the "fingers". I could not. I think that this would be a classic picture.

    Here ya go Wise, funny thing, I sent this yesterday to my husband and a few friends of ours. It was on MSNBC's website. I like yours much better though.
