The Value of Curiosity

With NASA just recently putting the rover Curiosity on Mars, a lot of interest in the process of space exploration has developed amongst the average population. Who better to discuss the necessity of such research and exploration than rocket science great Ernst Stuhlinger? During the 1950s and 1960s Stuhlinger played a vital role in allowing the USA to become a leader in space exploration. In 1970, Stuhlinger wrote this letter to a nun who was working with children in Zambia. The letter gives an intelligent and thought provoking answer to the question of why scientific research is so important to solving some of the world’s biggest problems. Enjoy!  :)
