This guy seems to think that, just because we have VR and robots, manned spaceflight is just a waste of resources. So what do you think? Is he on to something or just on something?
Virtual reality goggles are also getting very good at giving people the sense of being outside their bodies. The right equipment mounted on a robot on another planet could allow every human on earth with Internet access a chance at feeling like they are on another planet. So why go the expensive, manned spaceflight route? What often goes unstated is the role of business in lobbying for the most expensive space program possible.
