Today at lunch Adam fought with me about the usefulness of a space shuttle, yelling about how they are going to cure cancer in space and other such great achievements. I maintained that they aren’t doing anything useful whatsoever. Now, I have an article, published today, to back up my claims. Respond to that, Adam!
I do not in any way think that space travel is not worthwhile. In fact, I want to go myself. I just think that the way NASA does it is terrible, and if it were my choice I would send much of the money for space travel elsewhere, to more worthwhile space endeavors.
