America at a crossroads
I just read a really informative article interview of Neal DeGrasse about our space program. I agree with a lot of what he says. It seems the last couple of decades we have invested money in making money out of thin air. Wall Street, the financial markets you know the “Services industry”.
While that is important, we seem to have lost our way in the world and ultimately the universe. If we won’t or can’t make investments in science and technology, we will just have to accept the fact that we will eventually suffer the fate of all great empires. Mediocracy.
