Remember that the Baby Boomers are the hippies who went to Woodstock, protested the war etc. My parents for example are not fans of space and exploration and hate government spending until they get their Medicare and SSI benefits, or go yell at the city to fix roads.

So these are the Baby Boomers. I must admit not to have known that prior to you telling me.

Did they oppose space exploration because it's space, because it's hard science or because it's government? I feel like I'm getting the wind of it but would like to make sure.
