Quick Thoughts 1

Has anyone wondered if we're doing space exploration the wrong way round?

We're spending billions on putting scientists into orbit to do experiments essentially to see what happens.

No-one wants to spend loads of money on a trip to the moon or to Mars cos humans can't live there. Well why not spend billions researching ways to sustain human life in a dome or something then build one on the moon and then send one load of scientists to that dome to do all the science stuff?

Makes sense to me. OK, there's a slight risk of death if something goes wrong, but it's only a very slight risk and, lets face it, we're unlikely to run out of scientists!

Food for thought there. I'll get back to work.
