I read somewhere the other day that nobody born after 1935 has walked on the moon. Because it’s now a thing of a distant, unrepeatable past. It sounded very sad.
Does anybody know why it was all shut down? And please don’t say funding cuts. Funding cuts are not an explanation. They are an excuse.
Why does nobody care any more about space exploration? If people cared, it would find some reflection in political debates, for instance. And it doesn’t. Isn’t it weird that people just lost interest somehow? I know it used to be a very big deal.
