What on earth did the idiots think would happen to the rubbish they dropped along the way when they embarked on these very clever space programmes? It is the arrogant disregard for nature and common sense, not to mention refusing to see the ‘big picture’ which makes modern science so criminal.
Science made the mess, let science clean it up. Although if human beings had not been so stupid they would never have set out on these grand adventures in the first place without working out how to do it cleanly.
The irony of it is that scientists are now hysterical about global warming and ranting about how we need to clean up our act and they are the ones who made the mess in the first place.
Which ‘fairy’ as I said often to my children and now say to my grand-children, ‘do you think is going to pick up after you?’
