As if his voice alone wasn't commanding enough, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has us spellbound with one simple fact: "you can't put a price on space exploration." This video titled We Stopped Dreaming talks about the enormous impact that watching the Earth from the moon had on humans.
Whether you went to Space Camp, watched a shuttle take off on TV, or dreamed of being an astronaut as a child, the big NASA cutbacks last year affected us all. But Neil deGrasse Tyson urges us to go beyond that and see "NASA not as a handout but as an investment." The reason? "The act of discovery empowers." If you're in need of a good cry or hopeful voice today, watch this video ASAP.
