>I don’t understand our need to launch things into space. the latest one everyone’s all excited about is the Louis Braille commemorative coin. I think the coin’s a great idea, go nuts about the coin. But why in hell launch it into space? Do we need to create more spacejunk that can float around and hit the spacestation and damage other stuff up there? don’t we have enough litter down here?
I’m sorry if I seem ungrateful. I just can’t grasp how the coin being sent to infinity and beyond is going to help anybody.
