"I'm sure you don't need science to get into space"
You're probably too young to remember, but The Goons tried a long extending ladder
Most people's dreams are confined to having enough to feed their families
Space Travel is a diversion that our society can no longer aspire to that - a diversion - no more
I am old enough to remember the first moon landing being used to divert the attention from the fact that American planes were pouring burning petrol on the Vietnamese People - a prestige exercise in one-upmanship with The Soviets
Didn't work though - we continued to take to the streets and watched with a degree of satisfaction as the helicopters winched up the last of the Embassy Staff a few years later
Happy days
