Countdown to the Moon

1812 – Charlie

Charlie had not heard of NASA’s plans to send people back to the moon in 2024. He wonders what the purpose is and would rather see those resources used to address problems on earth. “Let’s cure cancer and HIV before exploring space.”

We started to talk about how space exploration competes for resources for curing disease. Also talked about what it takes to cure disease. But we did not get too far as our Yoga class was starting.
