You have been called before congress. Lawmakers from every part of the country, representing constituents from all walks of life, are asking you to give a speech on why the country should invest in basic science/astronomy research.
Write a 750 word Speech on why America as a country should invest in fundamental research about our universe.
Think about including technological off shoots of telescopes/satellites/rockets. Think about the potential future rewards of space travel. Speak to the very nature of humanity as a curious and exploring creature. Talk about beauty, wonder, economics, power, the serendipity of finding useful discoveries in unexpected places…. Be creative and in a sense, use what you learned in this class to justify to the American people why Astronomy matters.
