While I might agree with him to an extent, there are other issues in the immediate forefront that precede this, such as:

*Discontinuance of endless warring (which will eventually exterminate our entire species if not changed)...

**Taking better care of the PLANET WE'RE ON.

While I want to explore space and the cosmos as much as anyone else, we have such a big mess on this one little rock here that I think we need to get our own house cleaned up first.

The defense and aerospace industry have blinders on and can only see their own goals versus the rest of us that just want to live productive lives in peace as it was meant to be. Yes, someday the sun will go supernova or a giant something will crash into the planet but until then we have a lot of other stuff to do. Watch the video at the end of my signature. if Carla Rossin is right the defense industry is having its way with the people of Earth insisting we have to have weapons in space to fight commies, asteroids and evil aliens.
