What do I believe should be next in space exploration? I really don't care as long as it is something big that grabs the attention of the public. A return to the moon or a trip to Mars would be fine. I fear, though, that the old saw about guns vs. butter has been replaced by space vs. butter, and butter is winning the battle.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
