Star Trek Next Generation‘s Captain Jean Luc Picard, the oh-so-dapper Patrick Stewart, spoke out against manned space exploration in a BBC interview, stating “I would like to see us get this place right first before we have the arrogance to put significantly flawed civilizations out onto other planets.” He continued, “It would take up so many resources, which I personally feel should be directed at our own planet.” Damn tootin’. When school and library budgets are being slashed, health services are being cut, and Mother Nature is screaming out in pain, it is unconscionable to be spending billions to send people out to other worlds. I’m as die-hard a space-buff as the next person…but let’s focus our attention inward first. Okay George? Thanks to Dr. Web for bringing this to my attention.

“One More Reason Why Patrick Stewart is Cool”

  1. Taran Says:

    If you think about it, many of us stargaze and wonder what is out there. Yet the only reason that there is space exploration is because, behind it all, someone thinks that there is some economic benefit. Which means we don’t know how to keep what we have. Which makes us, effectively, a mix between Borg, Klingon and Romulan.
