71. My flight of fantasy about what we can do with "additional" time...
...we haven't had true space exploration in 33 years. How about a national space effort that returns us back to the Moon and starts on our way to Mars? Most of the "awesome" entertainment and amusement industry, from the Web to roller coasters to robotics, is a derivative of the NASA space programs of the 60s and 70s.

My apologies to Messers. Rutan and Branson, but privatized space flight is still years in the future.
