I think it’s really sad when a scientist seems to have a much better solution for solving this country’s problems than any of it’s politicians. However, in this case it’s the truth. This inspiring and passionate speech by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson from the 28th National Space Symposium explains how investing in space could solve many of the nations problems. Our economy would be spurred, our schools would flourish and the jobs we send overseas would no longer be a problem if only we doubled NASA’s budget. Dr. Tyson’s vigor oozes from this speech, do yourself a favor and get inspired by watching it. You won’t regret it.
