Why are robotic probes discredited?

Getting humans into space is ok, but we can probably get shit loads of robotic probes all over the solar system for a fraction of the cost to get 1 human to mars...

One thing that will help with humans is for us to come up with a commercial reason to have people living on the moon, as once its profitable then we'll find ourselves with a rapidly expanding colony (which will be amazing).

I still have no idea why they needed to fork from debian, instead of just maintaining packages/patches required to provide a systemd alternative from within debian.

When choosing a distribution, why anybody choose a distribution whose only clear philosophy was that it is not something else? Unlike debian which is ultimate software freedom and stability or whatever.
