    That’s what happened. Instead of pushing the envelope ever further it became less glitz and so was abandoned. Terrible day in history when the most successful and technological people on the face of the planet give up on the future….

    Imagine, just imagine, what our space exploration would look like if we'd been investing 10% of what we've been investing with the DoD on NASA!

    We'd have colonies on MARs by now, I suspect.

    The fact is, if we wanted to Colonize habitable planets without the hassle of the Moon (needs oxygen), Mars, etc., we'd have to fly lightyears, in the Billions, and we don't even know enough about those planets yet.

    Then, once we know enough to go for it, we have to figure out how to get there. That would consist of probably manipulating black holes or bending space, somehow.

    It is just amazing to see cons lament the changing of NASA.

    The majority of my life the cons I knew screamed about NASA being a waste of money.

    You can't even make a comment about space exploration without interjecting your partisan hack SHIT.

    GET A FUCKING LIFE for God sake... or SHUT THE FUCK UP!
