Default New cold war? Or revolution?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbIZU8cQWXc

when i watch this video i can't help but wish for a re-invigoration of science in the modern world. i've complained about america a lot on this forum, but it is only because they have the means to develop anything within the (reasonable) realm of possibility. as an australian i could only wish we had an institution like nasa, therefore i can only look on to america as the drivers of the future. but what would it take to achieve a goal like sending a man to mars? or even launching new and more powerful telescopes?

do we need a new faux-cold war? or a revolution to insight a drive that focuses on the future - unlike the drive to win the next election cycle as dr tyson says? what will it take to change the current policies of appeasement and nay sayers?

As long as the world thrives on war economy there is not much space for this kind of thinking.

nice pun. the problem there is the wars are fought against developing or war torn countries. if china actually started dominating space maybe the space race could be back on?
