“At the time of the Apollo 11 lunar landing mission, some Americans had reservations about the wisdom of reaching for the stars when troubles swelled on Earth” NYT.
It’s still true in 2019. And I totally second that, we are still living in a world, where wars and poverty are widespread. A large human populous lacks basic health needs., and underprivileged children in the 3rd World are not attending schools. Space Travel is a mere fantasy, for the rich. I have failed to comprehend it, how it could save humanity in the solar system beyond earth.
