On inspiring kids by thinking big in space

Our kids are bored with the space program and this is a real problem. As a society we need to look forward to exploration and adventure. Our kids are very aware of our focus on inward thinking and inability to realise our potential off of our planet. Commercial space companies like SpaceX and Virgin Galactic are about to change the world and we need to make sure we're ready. Inspiration in the form of a new frontier is near.
