Grauben thinks this "invasion" was a fact finding mission. And Grauben is very seldom wrong.
The real invasion is coming, and will use biological weapons. The Martians are already on Venus. And there is good reason to think they are also in the caves beneath our feet. They could attack from any direction at any time!
The War of the Worlds is not over. It's just beginning! If mankind is to survive then we need to know what's out there!
We need space flight! And we need to travel deep underground! We need to know what other intelligent species share our world, our solar system, our galaxy! We need to know what they know! And we need to start now!
