The current apathy and even aggression towards pure science aggravates me to no end. I think we are coming to a point where we should be- and should have been all along- accelerating our research and exploration of the universe. Instead we have squandered vast resources on trinkets and junk just assuming "the market" will solve our upcoming problems. Not only does this mindset jeopardize our progress and perhaps even future survival, but I believe it is also an assault on that which makes us human. Without dreams and exploration we wouldn't be anywhere close to where we are today. Still many are more than willing to completely turn their backs to it.
