Sorry but …

We took the first US spaceflight on May 5, 1961 – over 60-years ago. And what benefits have we gotten from decades of space adventures (besides glasses of Tang?)

  • any new scientific cures for diseases?
  • any new discoveries to feed starving people?
  • any better plans how to stop war?
  • any ways to make this a more inhabitable planet with less pollution and more tolerance of other nations?

Yes I know we’ve achieved remarkable, scientific goals – but for what? Planetary bragging rights?

Until these space accomplishments help the plight of one starving, diseased infant, I’ll consider them scientific masturbation.
