Well, a lot of people think it's wasted resources spending all that money on space, when folks at home on Earth could use it more or put into
renewable technology to make things sustainable instead of saying whelp we screwed this one up maybe we can try again somewhere else.
Then many younger people are so materialistic and seem to care about what middle aged adults consider trivial things, but can't get time to teach
them that because both parents are typically working to stay afloat, or too distracted with their own problems.
But if they want to garner more interest in space exploration etc. sadly they would have to slap a space helmet on the Biebs singing about pulling fat
stacks out of the moon.
Fortunately, there is a opposite movement away from the idocracy, that is more science and technology based. Kids are realizing that chasing empty
fads can leave you homeless in prison or flipping burgers. That it won't lead to fame and a mansion like it is presented on TV... "reality" shows
haven't helped human progress, unless the dumbing down of America is progress to someone's agenda.
I spoke with a political TV show host once which I will not name, and he said he was astounded that we waste so many billions on non productive
things, he said why we don't give every kid a free college education made no sense... I said you know that's rational but not ideal to our economy,
who is going to work the registers and flip the burgers? If everyone has a degree and in a career. Failure of education needs to be in it to work.
Sorry for getting a bit off on a tangent, more chatty than normal this morning. But, I suppose the debate comes down too... seeing something we have
already seen and been on several times or visiting an asteroid to get a better understanding of them.
Option moon, might be for some unknown plan of a moon outpost or trying to harvest resources off of it. Option Asteroid could be some unknown plan of
how to possibly, harvest their resources. We could get a quick sling shot around the moon to Mars so there's an upside to that, not sure the
specifics of the asteroid if it's mass is dense enough we could get a slingshot off of that too.
