I wholeheartedly agree. When I first read about this in New Scientist, I
wrote them a readers letter:
What is science but a sense of wonder about the world?
Why should the most awesome view of the world be in the exclusive domain
of well-funded fogies in white lab coats who can afford to "patch one
together from existing satellites"?
For the price of a couple of fighter planes, generations to come may
behold a single, unified, beautiful pearl, illuminating, in the bleakness
of outer space, our common world and our common future. An inspiration to
all of humanity.
Now that's what I call an investment.
