    particularly manned space flight/planetary exploration will serve to advance technologies that benefit everybody. Capitalists are the ones who fuck it up to make shitloads of money squelching access to it.

    I think a Mars mission will require further advancements/breakthroughs in battery technology, and such, things we needed 20 years ago and still dont have.

    THAT alone would make it worthwhile.

    Medical advancements from suspended animation research would be invaluable (at least until capitalists get them).

    Oh... yeah... waste management systems - a big win there, too.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
