Though our nature compels us to go "where no man has gone before," author Walter Matras argues that our scientific efforts and monetary expenditures may be better spent on our own unique planet with regards to health, welfare, and peace efforts. In "You Cannot Get There From Here," Matras takes readers on a journey through the wonders of earth’s universe and those beyond. He explains the true dangers of continued space exploration and how we should neither abandon nor neglect the amazing orb that is already our own. He cautions against a “grass is greener” approach, urging us to care more lovingly and lavishly for the planet tailor made for our survival--Earth.
