To Badly Go

23 May

In these times of great austerity Tom Chivers proposes we hoof a trillion dollars into a great work.

“What could arch this lefty plan?” you ask.  “Irrigate the Sahara?  Reduce inequality?  Solve the Euro problem?”


Tom, along with his colleague Ed West, proposes we build the Starship Enterprise.  Seriously.

Would you follow these two into a pub, let alone into space?

    haha. i found the piece quite arch and funny to be honest.

    And there is a serious point behind it, in that we aren’t exciting children about science nowadays….

      I enjoyed the piece too, thankfully Tom and Ed have a sense of humour and can take a harmless photoshop joke.
