Tuesday Video: Solving The Big Problems Is a Choice

By Tim Smith

When the United States’ ploughed a significant share of its national budget into sending some of its citizens to the moon, the cynics claimed that it was a tactical move.

While there is some truth in this, the endeavour, involving 400,000 people, 20,000 companies, universities and government agencies, was achieved, in the words of a certain president, because it was ‘hard’.

This little ten minutes of your life will not give you answers as to whether we should be using technologies to solve the big problems, rather it shows you, us even, that we have a choice.

‘We used to solve big problems’, and we can again, perhaps, in another ‘convulsive, collective effort’.

Always remember, it’s up to you.
