AdminCadet: You can say what you want about Space Cadets. But, at our core, we are all about one common belief: the human space exploration program and the expansion of human presence in our Universe. We love this dream, we support it, we want it to succeed. It is what we think our small world should be constantly working toward. Without it, we believe Mankind will eventually falter and become no longer relevant. Well, Mr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is a Space Cadet. And he has put together a small video on why we all should be one.
George Takei, the Guest Curator of http://www.upworthy.com (the site that published Mr. Tyson’s video) states it like this: “Neil deGrasse Tyson is… a true voice for our endangered space program. In this piece, he reminds us how our passion for space missions began and makes a compelling case that we must not abandon our quests and dreams.”
I don’t always agree with Mr. Tyson on everything he says. Sometimes he makes me shake my head. Sometimes he makes me laugh. Sometimes he makes me frown. This time, he made me want to sing. This video should be required viewing for all people in Congress, the Administration, and the American public.
Enjoy the five minute video – it is worth your time (go to this link):
