I would so like to witness a new “space race”, just like the one that took place in the ’60s.
The Indian Space Research Organization just put a spacecraft on the orbit of Mars with just $74m, on their 1st attempt nonetheless.
SpaceX is the 1st private company to take stuff into space. It wants to be the 1st company to build a city on Mars.
China also has great ambitions and it is said that by 2050 will be the largest space-exploring country, with bases on both our Moon and Mars.
Now, only if Neil deGrasse Tyson would organize the planet’s efforts in all this we’d had a much better chance of doing it right and as a species would evolve much faster and arguably in the right direction.
How about crowdfunding space exploration?
