    It is commonplace for scientific investigations to do that. It's a natural consequence of enlarging the field of investigation, either through greater detail,or greater range. If that is what you are referencing then the concern applies to all science. If you meant something else could you give a couple of illustrative examples?

    No I'll stick to unmanned instruments.

    OK, so you had repeated your statement that unmanned exploration raises more questions than answers. Could you explain what you mean by that?

    It is rather self explanatory I feel.

    Look if you don't believe that unmanned missions bring up more questions than they answer, fine. I'm through with this particular sub topic sub.

    I will be very surprised if both manned and robotic missions don’t bring up more questions than answers. We are exploring new areas. We expect to have more questions than answers.
