In this TED video, he gives examples of why we need the exploration of science. He remarks that studies have shown an ROI on Apollo of 14:1. He quotes--near the end of the presentation in a truly moving way--from Carl Sagan and Humphrey Davey on the need to keep pushing frontiers.
For PM's with projects on the cutting edge, this is a motivating and inspiring presentation by Dr. Cox.
