It's a great idea. Hope it won't get defunded in the next round of GOP "austerity".

Better if they spent the money on trying to fix up some of the mess on earth.

Fascinating and intriguing. Could we send some conservative politicians there to help look after the plants? Or will they kill off the plants without having a green thumb.

Space is essential, as sometimes it can provide answers or solutions to some of our problems. One can only hope.
