As this point in time, I have to ask: do we really need to do it? Space exploration, as romantic and exciting as it is, is luxury. Luxury we can't afford right now.

The billions needed for a manned mission to Mars could be well spent in other areas. Might be a tough thing to say, but it's the truth.

Besides, think of the billions of dollars Americans spend on entertainment per year. That's a luxury. We could be feeding the planet with that money.
