Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Dr. deGrasse Tyson nails it. We’ve become fixated upon the next quarter’s results and have no meaningful strategic vision in ANY SECTOR of our society for the future.

    This is where not only NASA, but a national infrastructure plan, could begin laying out a plan for the next 20-50 years. Or launch an international consortium to achieve nuclear fusion by 2020. Or launch an initiative to forecast which crops are going to best thrive in a hotter, drier climate by mid-century. Or how to arrange a transportation system without individuals spending $28,000 every five years for a oil-guzzling remnant of the early-1900′s.
