    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.
