Rationale and goal of the U.S. civil space program.

I answered this:

a.) Mankind always has been, and always will be curious - and expansive.
We need all the knowledge we can get because: The ultimate goal should be "to leave the cradle".
It doesn't matter whether this takes 100 or 1,000 or even 1,000,000 years.
I always try to see the big picture, removed from petty partisan or short-term issues.

That is why:
b.) National issues don't matter much to me.
The planet is my nation.
The universe will hopefully be our nation soon.
So keep the dream alive - nationally and globally.


--- Well, all I could do with the little web time I had, but any longer statement would only reinforce this.
