Space Travel and the Flat Earth
As a kid who grew up during the Space Age, it is hard to explain the disappointment many of us feel over the lack of progress in space exploration. I remember as a kid reading in my World Book Encyclopedia how we would have Moon colonies by the 1980s. We thought that by the year 2000 most people would be able to travel to the Moon and maybe Mars.
Since that time, NASA has lost the “right stuff.” We have been reduced to flying pointless near Earth space shuttle missions. Within a few years the Space Shuttle will be grounded and we will be unable to fly in space.
The clip below illustrates the scientific de-evolution we have experienced since the 1970s. The fact that any media personality could serious question if the Earth is a globe is embarrassing to those of us who knew a different America.
