Life on Enceladus

So it's not real of course but I think the comic is funny and insightful. When you look at NASA's funding in the past decade it seems to have maintained a steady decline and is, as mentioned in lecture, no where close to where it used to be in say, the 1960s. Maybe the public needs a little push to remember that we've still explored so little of the "final frontier". What do you think of the comic? Do you think the public we'll ever be as invested in extraterrestrial exploration as it was in the '60s? Is a manned journey to Enceladus, Mars, or another moon in the near future?
