Re: Dear AC

Once upon a time, the space race was all about two countries trying to one-up each other, nothing more. Since then, so very many technologies have grown from it, industries have been built around it and generally the world is a better place for it. This is just one example where this sort of effort has led to all sorts of unintended but useful outcomes. Plus it sure beats warfare as a driver of innovation.
