Even more ironic is when people make statements like the above without even considering the information about Earth itself which has been
gleaned from studying our planet from space. In fact, without space travel, we would today know far, far less about Earth than we actually do;
Archaeologically, Geologically, Oceanographically, Meteorologically, Ecologically, Environmentally and even Geographically.
Oh,there is certainly an argument to be made for the space program. There would be even more of an argument to be made for it if NASA actually told us
the truth, but that is beside the point.
However, with that being said, we are sending these shuttles and things into space to explore the "wilderness" of space, yet, there are still places
here on earth that men haven't stepped foot on in ages,if ever. It just doesn't add up to me. What about oceanic exploration? That used to be a big
deal....now they,TPTB, act as if it's not existent.
