Countdown to the Moon

1811 – Ammaar

Ammaar has heard about the plans to land astronauts on the moon in 2024 from NASA’s twitter account. He is excited about NASA going back and he would like to go too. He is also a big SpaceX and Elon Musk fan. And he sees no reason why we can’t explore space and do all the other things that people want to do. There is so much we don’t know, let’s go out and explore.

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.

1819 – Roopa

Roopa has not heard about NASA’s plans to land on the moon in 2024. She is not excited about it. We have enough problems on earth. We messed up the earth and we do not need to mess up the moon too. We should live in a state of nature.

It is ironic to think that the picture that Apollo 8 took that changed our perception of the world might lead to us shaming ourselves into dying on earth. Our environmental, global awakening has lead some people to believe that humanity is not good and can do no good.
