    I maintain that since all the alternatives have issues, and those with the least issues are still a decade away, the govt. should be asking us to conserve, but they are not. Our govt seems to have more interest in keeping the OPEC nation's economies stable than our own....

    As for private industry, I agree, they are the ones who should be pushing the envelope. But I remember well the days of the solar water heating industry.
    It committed suicide as soon as the govt subsidies started going away.
    They priced themselves out of business....

    a degree isn't needed, but technical knowledge of what is practical, achievable, viable, scalable, and affordable is needed.

    Then why did you do poorly in this debate? You did not even bother to respond to this...

    Common sense and the ability to read go's a long way in pointing out bull****.

    You don't need a degree for that.

    It is only in your own mind that I am doing poorly, that is your weak response to my posts.

    Summation, for you slower readers.....
    Space travel is not necessary, and I do not support it. Sorry if that dissenting opinion offends you....

    Does not offend at all. It's just not backed up by anything like facts.

    how can that be since NASA hadn't invented them yet?


    Next thing the gullible ones will say is that NASA invented space tourism, another thing that 99.999999% of us will never be able to afford.....

    This has nothing to do with NASA. Public schools should not even exist, and is irrelevant as most state property taxes go to the schools. This is not a Federal problem.

    More fallacy arguments, jesh.
    No public schools? Where did you get YOUR education? Space travel is not a public problem, so why should the public pay for it?

    the word is dangerous...
    If we really could extract shale oil for 30 bucks, it would be happening. What are the sources for that number?

    Private schools paid for by my parents. Would you like me to list them for you as well?

    Public schools and our public school system are an abomination. So much so we sent our daughter through private schools as well. She is an engineer now.

    Space travel is not the problem and we have reaped many benefits because of the research already shown in this thread. In the future it will be even more valuable.
