The anti space exploration people are so predictable.

I should have known making a post in the wake of Armstrong's death about why we weren't colonizing the solar system would have brought out the Luddites and misanthropes and turned the thread into a 500-post epic flame-war filled with ignorance and allusions to "Avatar". Why do I always make such threads hoping for educated and reasonable discussions?

2. Telling the truth is not misanthropy

 

We're not leaving Earth. You need to quit being so butthurt about it and go watch Star Trek or something. You have NO IDEA about astrophysics except what that Randian buffoon Zubrin says. Space colonization is a flight of fancy.
