True learning never stops; it pushes us out ever-farther into uncharted territory. As both space exploration and Torah study show us, each new discovery spurs new lines of inquiry.
This would be a whole new kind of reality show. The consequences are real. If you win, you are sent to a barren desert planet to never return. If you lose, nothing happens and you go back to living your -- wait... did I mess that up?
The time to start planning the next large international space mission is now. That mission should be a human mission to Mars. Despite the troubling economic and budgetary times, there is clear support in the U.S. for human Mars exploration.
The argument goes, "We've done such a crappy job of caring for our planet that we really do need to look for another place to live." I suppose that's what bugs me about Mr. Hawking's call for more public money for space exploration. It's the rationale.
Energy from PSCE is so expensive that utilities sell at a loss or increase prices for customers. Several municipalities have had to declare bankruptcy. How did this come to light?
Ceding America's leadership in space, world passing us by? Uh, nothing could be farther from the truth.

Mars has been restored to the reachable horizons of human spaceflight. Millionaire financier and engineer Dennis Tito has announced a plan to launch a middle-aged married couple on a flyby mission to the planet in early January 2018, returning them to Earth a year and a half later.
So why bother with all the risk and expense of trying to put people on Mars when, for a mere fraction fo the cost, you can produce one heck of a 'reality' show and get much better ratings.
The system is poised for change. Now is the time for all of us to show companies that it is in their interests to lead. No brand is too big not to listen to its customers, and if enough of us urge the "Big 10" to do what is right, they will have no choice but to listen.
It is easy to become discouraged in the face of what the media reports all around us. Hope or despair is a choice we make as we interpret what we notice in the world. Here are nine reasons to choose hope.
In these complex times, are Americans in favor of human exploration of the Mars? The answer is an unequivocal, "Yes." The optimism that we are frequently told is slipping away is still there. It is just waiting for us to start pushing against the boundaries of all that is possible.
The dinosaurs didn't fare well. Man, on the other hand, has a better chance. Whether or not we can deflect a large meteor as in the Hollywood movie, Armageddon, remains to be seen. But brilliant minds are at work. And nothing like an external threat to galvanize humanity.
Like everything else we see in Astrology, it can go at least two ways.
It is highly likely that the generation that will first step foot on Mars is already with us. Assuming these individuals are still of school age today, "The Mars Generation" will have a much different perspective of the world than previous generations.
