DailyDirt: To Space And Back

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The biggest challenge to modern space exploration isn't figuring out how to do it, it's marshalling the necessary resources and support — especially for cash-strapped government agencies like NASA. Here are just a few of the latest ways that people are working to make space a little more accessible (and a little more popular).

    "The biggest challenge to modern space exploration isn't figuring out how to do it,"

    If you are talking about human occupied mission(s) beyond the moon, then yes it is all about how to do it. There are so many technical hurdles yet to be overcome that any such mission would certainly result in loss of life. But why bother when robots are quite sufficient for the task at hand.
