Re: Obama Space Plan: Return to Moon: "No Go"

Let's fix Health Care, let's fix the economy, terrorism, a declined education system, corprate and political corruption, So many more things to do than to go into outer space. They won't just go away after we discover warp drive like Star Trek proposes. Yes, I think it's the right call to get rid or downscale NASA until they can figure out a more purposeful direction than to blow money children could be using for medical care, out the air-lock.
I was never a fan of this type of argument against space exploration. It's akin to someone in a lifeboat saying "Hey! we need to solve our water and food problem before we go looking for a way to get to shore!".
