I wonder if the "last frontier" has changed somewhat, is it still space? It seems that in the last 30 years not much has happened. We haven't put people on Mars or have stations on our Moon, everything is satellites. The navy basically owns anything that could re-establish undersea exploration -- but which is more important?

Which is more expensive, or visible to the public, or can help us discover ourselves?


The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

Why has going to Mars have to be so expensive?
Apollo cost so much as virtually all the facilities and infrastructure had to be built from scratch.
Put 'Robert Zubrin' in the search engine and check out his 'Mars Direct' proposals.
If NASA ever get the green light, this will be the way to go, and they've adopted much of his plan in their studies.
That's what happens when you look at things freshly, without trying to build in various NASA Centre's pet projects like advanced propulsion systems, in-orbit assembly and all the rest.
Better yet, Zubrin addresses human problems such as Zero-G and radiation exposure.
