Elegant.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

And what were the conditions of the experiment?

Mice exposed to conditions outside the Earth magnetosphere sufferred neurological and dendrite loss.

The point of the experiment was to ... not have shielding, genius ;-)  At least in the experiment the mice got air and water .. because the vacuum of space sucks.

Okay, they proved dangerous places are dangerous. Next, let's get them to smoke in a fireworks factory.

The work is to solve the problems.  Yeah, I know that sounds simple, but we humans tend to solve problems.

My grandfather saw the first air flights and humans walking on the moon.  He said we could do anything.  I agree.
