Newspeak “Do think…” I thinks it should as a member of the Planetary Society, which consists of many members from many nations on planet Earth. In the spirit of cooperation the US government could continue to fund space exploration that has kept the interests of the many citizens of the planet excited about the Universe around us along with the research of other nations now also in space. I think(s) “Was it Sir Arthur C. Clarke who warned of a new “Tower of Babel” of communications satellites that just reinforce individual (ethnic) cultures and language without international cooperation?” Though the sir is dropped in New Zealand, they launch near space sounding rockets and make available research payloads to any and all. The spirit of internationalism aboard Captain Husband’s ill-fated Columbia space shuttle should not be abandoned or forgotten.
Safe ports…dawn and dusk vision…”gated” lasers just might in development. Dark NEO’s full of minerals (Near Earth Orbit). Moon distance already being measured with them. “Laser propulsion” near the speed of light. We measure it to record properties, build roads, etc., infrared (visible lasers for tunnels) “tacheometers” or “total stations” are now under $4000. Very accurate.
