About the topic: Why did we go to the Moon? Why does the Vatican support an astronomical observatory? These questions mask a deeper question: why do individuals choose to spend their lives in pursuit of pure knowledge? The motivation behind our choices, both as individuals and as a society, controls the sorts of science that gets done…and how we teach that science in our schools. It determines the kinds of answers that are found to be satisfying. And ultimately, it affects the way we think about ourselves and our relationship with God.
