Why Space Travel Is A Stupid Idea

It seems to me that all other arguments aside, when a lamp falling onto the outside of a space ship and causing "… five small indentations, with the largest about the size of a stick of gum, and one 6-inch (15-centimeter) to 7-inch (17-centimeter) long scratch" makes it onto the news, then it's time to be rethinking whether this is a goal worth pursuing. Doubtless at this very moment a ten-man committee is being formed to write a review of the "Procedures for Luminescent Output Device Restraint In Shuttle Proximity".

Bonus opinion: I don't believe that the spokesman for the space shuttle's manufacturer, Lockheed Martin, is called Marion LaNasa. I think they made that up.
