    Homo sapiens sapiens. And you?

    Y'all pay tax-dollars to the Departments of Agriculture and Interior and you never read any of the reports they publish?

    I guess not. Otherwise, you'd be aware of the Millions and Millions of acres of fallow farmland around the US. There's Millions more in Europe and Eurasia.

    Perhaps you don't understand it would take centuries for your population to reach 60 Billion.

    The @ULALaunch Atlas V rocket lifted off successfully at 5:34 a.m. EDT (09:34 UTC), beginning #LucyMission's 12-year journey to the Trojan asteroids, ancient space rocks that share an orbit with Jupiter around the Sun.

    The rocket launched from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida, carrying the first spacecraft to ever study the Trojan asteroids, which are thought to be time capsules from the birth of our solar system more than 4 billion years ago. Shortly after launch, the Lucy spacecraft separated from the rocket’s Centaur upper stage to fly freely for the first time.

    After Lucy's solar arrays unfurled, cheers and applause erupted from the launch teams. And Lucy went off to uncover secrets of our universe.

    It has nothing to do individualism. It has everything to do with our collective behavior / responsibility on this SHARED PLANET..........

    ????? No. I just dont understand your use of the phrase "your population". Assuming you are human, that would be our population.

    SpaceX capsule with 4 astronauts on board splashes down in the Gulf of Mexico, ending another successful mission

    The return of the four astronauts marks the fourth time SpaceX has brought home a crewed spaceflight. The astronauts, two from the United States and one each from France and Japan, had been aboard the International Space Station since April.

    I wonder if SpaceX will advance returning beyond having to splash down in the ocean at some point. They're sure pushing aerospace technology forward in other ways.

    It boggles my mind that some will complain about the absolutely tiny percentage of public spending put into space science or even science generally, but think nothing of the massive gaping resource hole that is the military industrial complex.

    Humans on other planets is more dream fuel than it is practical or necessarily or efficient. Robots are the more efficient route, but dreams are important because they spark the ego and motivation.

    It also has very very little to do with the behaviour of individuals, and much much more to do with corporate behaviour.
