Save Moon - scrap the Sun

February 17, 2011

Gary Day, reviewing Do We Really Need the Moon? ("Satellite in my eyes", 10 February), mentions that the government might abolish the Moon on a strictly utilitarian basis. I believe that this would be wrong and that the Moon is extremely valuable since it shines at night when it is dark and we need it.

A better candidate for abolition would be the Sun, which shines during the day when it is light and we do not need it.

This action would also solve global warming at a stroke and is to be recommended.

Universities in most nations are now obliged to prioritise graduate career prospects, but how it should be approached depends on your view of the meaning of education. Academics need to think that through much more clearly, says Tom Cutterham
