We understand; they need the money. But get this:
NASA ‘on the Cusp’ of Being Able to Answer if We’re Alone in the Universe
Chairman says Obama’s funding level “would slow the rate” of missions like the Pluto flyby. More.
Are we alone? It’s not an honest question because NASA would never accept a positive answer, as in: Yes we are alone.
And we will never be sure if any answer is available either.
That’s fine, and no one here says they shouldn’t be funded. But could they spare us this stupidity?
Maybe we are not always the fools they take us for.
Don’t let Mars fool you. Those exoplanets teem with life!
But surely we can’t conjure an entire advanced civilization?
