This op-ed claims that there’s not much for the United States up in space;
the moonshot was always a myth. The author discusses the motivations behind the Apollo program and the differences with today’s geopolitical environment. Quote: ‘Kennedy rejected Webb’s argument that the basis for the Apollo program was scientific. “I’m not that interested in space,” Kennedy said. “I think it’s good. I think we ought to know about it. We’re ready to spend reasonable amounts of money.” If science or the progress of humanity mattered most, the president noted in the same conversation, then it would be more important to spend the herculean sums on desalination or curing cancer.’
