Is it done? Should I keep watching?


LOL

The funniest part is half of us don't even know what the hell we're watching.. And we know we don't know what the hell we're watching when we don't even know when it's over

The US spent 100 billion more on its military budget in 2010 than NASA has spent in its entire history.




Yeah. It's pretty sad. NASA costs 1/2 a penny on the dollar.

And it's estimated for every $1 spent on space exploration, $10 has been put into the economy on new products, materials, technology, computers, aerospace developments, etc. So which is the better bargain?

How long is the rover functional on Mars for?


Years. It's powered by plutonium.

I love listening to that man speak.

And it's estimated for every $1 spent on space exploration, $10 has been put into the economy on new products, materials, technology, computers, aerospace developments, etc. So which is the better bargain?

Exactly. Space exploration produces a ton of technology we can use here on Earth in addition to the benefits of learning more about our universe. It's criminally underfunded.

Absolutely. Nothing inspires humans more than seeing humans doing the pushing our limits and boundaries.

Manned exploration is a MUST....even if expensive, inefficient and impractical.

Long term yes. Short term we need to get a reliable, reusable spacecraft to get payloads into orbit first so it's not so expensive.
Sort of like the original goal of the Shuttle, before the accountants hacked it's budget.

I'd love to see something like this but piloted.
