in thread In praise of curiosity



I don't care about the government's motivation. The government will do the same damn dumb things every damn government's done from the beginning of time to the end, because that's what governments do -- safe, dumb things.

My concern is the motivation of each astronaut to do something that had a relatively high risk of death. Prestige will only make you risk so much -- and then you must be motivated by something else.
