Re: Still irrelevant
"many people"? Nope
Actually yes. Quite a lot of people.
It's easy to forget just how big the UK space industry is - even the workforce associated with that "miniscule percentage"is a significant number of people.
And that's the important word: "people". These are real people, with real families and real commitments.
It's very easy for you to come onto a forum like that and spout an opinion, but this is all a very real situation for some very real people.
Would you care to speak to any of these people in person? Tell their spouses and kids that "well, you may lose Daddy's (or Mummy's) income, so it'll be hard to put keep a roof over your heads and put food on the table, but that's OK, because Daddy (or Mummy) was irrelevant anyway"
