Funding the seed corn of advanced space technology

Abstract:
There is so much to do in the universe and on our planet. If we choose not to plant our seed corn, though, those efforts will only get more expensive and more out of reach. Costs for launch, in-space propulsion, life support, communications, power, instrumentation, science instruments and robotics will continue to skyrocket (space-rocket!), and we will do less. Conversely, if we stimulate these technologies with grants and innovative programs, we have a chance of not just thinking out of the box but actually getting out of the box and escaping those constraints that now make us despair. The electronics revolution is a harbinger of what is possible. Nanotechnology and information processing will make things weigh and cost less while providing new benefits to apply both in space and on Earth.
