Among my friends are many stellar geeks clambering to rocket off and set up a new space colony. Firstly they seriously considered the moon but gradually the red planet Mars became more favoured.
The wealth needed for such a venture could shelter and feed all those in dire poverty! Yet those with such wealth have absolutely no concept of what real poverty is and prefer to squander their excess on such a venture. I’ll leave it to them. Here’s hoping that I can afford to pay the rent this week.
Life amongst the stars
Is there autumn up on Mars
Let’s fight poverty
