  • Should we be in a new space race? Greg Dyke thinks it would be fantastic if mankind looks to the stars again, but June Sarpong argues that we need to "sort out planet Earth before we start worrying about space".SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel for more videos: Follow us on Twitter: and Like us on Facebook: Follow us on Instagram: For more content go to and download our apps: Apple Android

    But wasn't the space race in the 60s all about ego? Just about everything anyone ever does is about ego, it's called a human trait.
    But i guess the mainstream media wouldn't know what being human is.

    "Back on the moon" so your premise is that they went there in the first place?
    This is the definition of propaganda based on a false history.

    Of course, we should be thinking about the destruction of our habitate here. Rain forest, climate change, renewable energy, all changeable with the proper use of technology. And the world is talking about going 'back' to the moon? Ask the NASA Orion team how they plan to deal with the Van Allen belt radiation. Apparently they've lost the 'old' 1969 technology and haven't quite worked it out yet.

    Wow I actually agree with a couple things these people said for once. First a ton of modern microbiology equipment and methods were developed by nasa and completely changed how we identify pathogens and identify most affective antibiotics... second we DEFINITELY shouldn’t be giving aid to India if they have the money for a space program.

    No it isn't ego. The world is quaking in its boots about global warming. But global warming won't kill off humanity. Humanity has survived shifts in temperature before, it would do again. What will kill off humanity, as is often the case throughout earth history, is a threat from space. Humanity's the first species to develop the capability to leave earth. That capability needs to be harnessed built upon and invested in for long term continuity of our species. Ego, is suggesting we don't need to develop space technology.
