I fear that the chaos growing in my own nation means as science starts to understand more about the universe, the revelations will be appreciated and embraced and benefit other nations. There is no money for real science when so much money spent on war and global conflict. Other nations OR corporations will be doing archeology on Mars or biology on Enceladus, not the US. Our only interest at the top is to “militarize” with a new branch of service, the Space Force. Sad and tragic to a boy who watched Americans walk on the moon.
