A great article by American astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson about the need to continue fueling the move into the world beyond our world. The long-range benefits for humanity–not to mention the insane number of life-improving off-shoots we gain from such endeavors–demands we get behind our nation’s grand history of space exploration. In the process, America can (once again) assume a leadership role and credibility of both culture and scientific strength on our planet.
(There’s a way to inspire an entire culture through exploration–and end up inventing the next microwave while doing it.) Refuel NASA!
