Here's the big picture: A lot of people find they don't need other people, in flat contradiction of Barbra Streisand's famously cheerful apothegm. A lot of people, according to Robert Zubrin, so heartily dislike or despise people viewed as competing with them for use of the world's resources that they consign them to degradation and worse.
Some fear this week's final space shuttle launch means the end of American dominance in space, but NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden thinks the future is bright and is promising that one day humans will set foot on Mars.
Mr. Zubrin argues Mars missions and other adventurous objectives are “the answer for the economic problem” because such initiatives drive development in the private sector and steer the brightest minds toward careers in engineering and science and help unleash creative potential.
"The faster you do something, the cheaper it will be," he said.
