Is finding microbes really exploring space? April 23, 2012

I saw an article on Space Daily that shows the absurdity of letting “scientists” set the agenda for exploring space. The article Bringing Mars Back to Earth which discusses how an international group of space snobs (including NASA technocrats)  thinks we should waste time returning to Earth rock samples from Mars hoping for signs of ancient microscopic life. This is moronic and engenders absolutely no interest among tax paying citizens asked to fund such a folly. This group says it will take three mission to Mars to return samples. What a colossal waste of time and resources. Why are such credentialed  mis-guided people allowed to set the ageda for space exploration? Because our leadership is clueless and has no vision or agenda what so ever.

We need to rebel against such nonsense and demand from NASA (No Advancement Since Apollo) and government an agenda for HUMAN exploration of near space. Why not a create a project; ditch NASA and it bureaucracy and take the money to establish a permanent human occupied outpost on Mars!  Such and initiative would inspire people and lead to a human presence outside of Earth which is legitimate human exploration, not twiddling test tubes looking for microscopic “evidence”.

I urge you to email the  Committee on Science & Technology, which is the US government agency responsible for NASA & let then know the we want to see red Martian dust on an American astronauts boots, not Mars rocks. We have enough rocks in the heads of NASA administrators & “scientists” to examine for decades.
