Default Re: Random Thoughts

I have been following the space program for many years. My Dad was a chemical engineer, rocket scientist, and spent a lot of time at Canaveral. I was excited about getting to the moon, and glad we went, but now, Mars, I don't know why. To look for water? Spend the money on education as was mentioned or on drilling/processing our own oil. To me going to Mars is not beneficial. A nine month trip. I only get 4 weeks per year. I may be in the minority here but just feel like there must be better ways of spending our money.
