Today's Odd Opinion Piece
Are we driven to explore?, Space Review
“That squirmy disruptive kid who we’re putting on Ritalin today might be tomorrow’s Neil Armstrong. At least, that is, if we don’t overmedicate or “feminize” him to the point that he can’t get the education and experience he needs to be a space explorer. … It certainly seems empirically obvious that most people have little interest in exploring.”
Editor’s note: The author of this article makes some odd, borderline misogynist, and mostly unsupportable claims (mixed with some valid points) as he rambles along trying to explain why people do or not explore. “Empirically obvious”? – Where’s the data to support this?
