Is space cool again? The debate rages, but we can only hope it will inspire kids to learn math, science and engineering.

While everyone is still thinking about space, Mars and beyond, let’s take a moment to give the floor to my main man, Neil deGrasse Tyson. If you don’t know him, search around online. Dr. Tyson is a vocal, passionate supporter of space exploration. He’s not in it for the job security, but for broader, fantastically wider-reaching ends. Our dreams.

This incredible video is one of a set of two making the case for NASA, private space exploration and the future of our dreams. “We stopped dreaming,” is a phrase Dr. Tyson likes to drop once in a while, and this reporter sees his point. Do not miss this video.

Full disclosure: I’ve watched this a dozen times, and I always come away with goosebumps and a little bit of anger at the state of our science programs and budgets. Watch it and let us know your feelings in the comments below. via YouTube
