this is an interview of Neil DeGrasse Tyson one of my absolute favorite scientists and political speakers (whom i feel would actually be able to make some real changes in this country given the chance though i doubt he'd actually want to do it)
I want to also make a statement that i believe he is correct in much of what he says. we need to put more money into space and science technology and make that a focus of the american people. it will help us advance to a new age, a new frontier which will bring us to the next age of man. we must advance beyond the known and stop bickering amongst ourselves about the trivial pursuits that we have created. it should be a goal of ours to get into space because in truth this may be our one and only shot to ever do so. we have a chance to expand our species to new planets, so why are we not taking that chance?
as always please comment and give me your opinions! I'll be bringing such content to all of you and giving my opinions on them from now on as my original posts in order to stimulate not only ideas but debates in polotics and science! i'm looking forward to these posts and i can't wait to hear what everyone has to say!
