There’s an asteroid coming close to the Earth on April 19th – space rock – and it’s one of many that have been detected recently. Unfortunately NASA’s budget for their Asteroid Redirect Mission will be cut – Nasa budget – and a good deal of NASA’s research depends on private funding – Nasa funding. This is why it’s important to donate to organizations like the Emergency Asteroid Defense Project – EADP indigogo, a private group of of scientists, engineers, experts, entrepreneurs and global citizens dedicated to studying, testing, and constructing an asteroid defense strategy here and now, before it’s too late.
Our money is better spent protecting and maintaing Earth then trying to make Mars an inhabitable environment. And the final portion of my podcast argues this case. The radiation, gravity, dust, and length of day are among many issues that make this place fucking intolerable to humanity and we should stop spending money on exploring this stupid rock immediately. Even Neil Degrasse Tyson agrees: Fuck mars!
