An open space for global conversation
From what I understand, the space race was about whether the U.S. or the U.S.S.R was the most disciplined, if discipline meant creating durable vessels for humans to go somewhere other than the planet which sustains life. So basically we flew up into space, and planted our flag. I think we won, but I might be mistaken. Anyways, there is no U.S.S.R anymore so we either won, or definitely lost, depending on whether or not it is good to remain, which seemed to be a question in the space race: 'is it best to stay on planet Earth?' With so much air pollution and nuclear violence possible, this is a question we have to immediately begin exploring.
I would welcome your visionary thoughts, here.
