I feel that for the collective "us" to continue to grow as a species we need to stretch our wings and fly, preferrably up versus down. Should space exploration be denied to us for whatever reason, our ability to evolve spiritually, physically and mentally would take a severe negative hit. Without space exploration, we would stagnate and eventually fade into galactic history.
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.
