Buzz Aldrin & Stephen Hawking Join Forces to Invigorate U.S. Space ExplorationMarch 8, 2011 0 Comments
The 2nd man to step foot on the moon has teamed up with the smartest man in the world to create a "Unified Space Vision" which "seeks to define and obtain a Unified Space Vision that will continue the expansion of a human presence in space and ensure the perpetuation of the species."
Buzz Aldrin and Stephen Hawking hope their Vision gives nations around the world a list of definable goals and encourages global cooperation.
This unified vision will encourage global leadership," they said. "As nations approach the endeavor jointly, rather than in the competitive playing field of the past, each nation will contribute its own special strengths and resources."
I honestly think competition is the way to get to outer space. Global cooperation depends on global will, and most people don't care about space exploration. I support NASA's trend to outsource the job to private companies.
