"No one expected us to turn away from manned space exploration so quickly and so completely. It's kinda sad when you think about it."
Without having developed too strong of an opinion on the matter, i think
i'm thinking that it's sad that the Idea of Mining
the moon is what might bring us back there... and it's also sad that we know comparatively Nothing
about the 70% of Earth that lies Under Water.
Except that i'm glad we're not Further
disturbing Critters and Polluting the Oceans before we can develop a plan that will be as UnIntrusive as possible...
