Will Space travel change our perspective on the human condition?
Space, also known as The Final Frontier, has been in our collective dreams and fantasies for decades. Who WOULDN’T want to blast into space, experience zero gravity, or walk on the moon?! But with limited funding to NASA, the day that had been promised to us for years (in addition to flying cars and hover boards), seems no closer now than it did 30 years ago. BUT WAIT! Could private research and funding be the future of galactic exploration? And maybe once we are all able to see the earth from a distance, we’ll all gain some much needed perspective. So keep on truckin’ Elon Musk, for humanity’s sake.
