Obsolete Dreams

Photograph By Corey Smith

"This is another piece I did dealing with the obsolescence of technology and the misappropriation of resources. I think it's a debate to be had about whether or not space exploration is something we as a country should be spending billions upon billions of dollars on when we have so many more unattended problems here on Earth. NASA is almost like the Egyptian pyramids of our time: unlimited resources and manpower spent to stroke our egos, and now they're just obsolete relics; meanwhile, people are starving."
