Space and NASA: The Truth

Space and NASA: The Truth

Posted: 04/ 9/2012 8:27 am
We have taken a step back from the cosmos. In the '60s and '70s, however, cold war nationalism fueled a space race that brought humans into earth orbit and then to the moon in less than a decade. But we soon discovered the Soviet space program was more interested with creating a space station that would orbit the Earth rather than reaching the moon. We followed suit and turned our backs to the moon and any hope of traveling beyond it. Robots and probes aside, we have given up on traveling through the depths of space and trekking new worlds. Performing experiments on a space station orbiting the Earth or travelling a few miles above the stratosphere in a privately-built spaceship do not constitute true space exploration. Today, our government -- and many others -- does not see the importance of travelling into the cosmos; thus, they underfund and neglect the space agencies.
