What have we achieved ?
Wealth, poverty, famine, war
Technology for profit
Weapons that kill, disable, scar.

We travel to space
Spend billions to pursue
More profit and vanity
Never asking me or you.

      Science fact.

      In a nutshell.
      "They" never ask me or you. But "We'" don't travel into space 'cos at anytime now or in the past I won't be going: -
      It, given the immensity of the universe is a ridiculous enterprise anyway.
