Why Space? Why Now?

Why Space? Why Now? That is the Question, Dennis Wingo, SpaceRef

"As we all know another administration change is coming and with change as the operative theme of this administration, we can surely expect that this will come to NASA's direction. Many people are anticipating this (except for the current administrator) and are formulating their plans on how we can "improve" upon Dr. Griffin's ESAS architecture. I get calls from many of these people and participate in some of the discussions. However, as I hear these calls and read the position papers there is a feeling of something missing and the thing that is missing is what has left us circling the Earth in some form or fashion for the past 36 years. The thing that is missing is a compelling "why" as a fundamental rational for our space efforts."
