Writer's Block: Fly me to the moon

Do you think space exploration is important? Is it worth the billions our governments spend?

Anyone who knows me....

I think we need to put more money into space exploration.  Goddamn.  I want to go to Titan already.  And Mars.  I want to know what's in interstellar space.  I want to see a spacecraft reach another star.  I want to know what's behind dark energy and dark matter.  I have sooo many questions.   It's incredible stuff, it really is.  And it's far more important than so much of the stuff we do waste money on.   

Could you imagine someday down the line our ancestors living on Gliese 581g?Wouldn't that be such an incredible feat?

I think so too. Come for a visit. If you're curious. The English text here and in other posts, beneath the link below:

Co-frickin'-signed.

This is pretty much my every goddamned thought on Mars.

Humans to Mars in TEN YEARS, NASA. Not fifty. TEN.

I mean goddamnit you tell me I could be the first person on Mars and I'll abandon everything I've been working on to train. I don't even care that I'd have to relearn math and that I'll probably spend the rest of my life trying to commit the physics of everything to memory but I WILL DO IT IF IT MEANS I GET TO BE THE FIRST PERSON ON MARS.

That video is amazing.

I've seriously considered switching my major several times, because I think I'd love to work for NASA. And if there was any guarantee I could be the second person on Mars (after you of course), or even just be in space I'd do it in a heartbeat.
