I simply want to say that the above quoted is only your opinion. Now I'm sure that there are numerous people out there who share your opinion but that does not mean you are right. It also does not mean you are wrong.

I say this b/c honestly I disagree. I'm not saying it's smart to cut off all science and that we shouldn't try to expand our knowledge, I'm that 700 million dollars is STILL a lot of money. What difference does it make if someone else wasted 1 trillion dollars?

Cutting funding might hinder human advancement (in your opinion) but it would also feed many more. It could also provide housing for many more.

In the end neither one of us can say what is right or wrong or what the future is. Unless of course one of us has a time machine in their basement and has been
The thing is advancements in science very much helps all the issues you brought up. Look at the quality of life just 100 years ago prior to all the major advancements we have seen in recent years. There is a clear correlation between scientific advancement and improved quality of life. Improved life expectancy, vastly improved ability to deal with the sick, better ways to grow and distribute food, the list goes on and on. Yes, obviously it would be better if we didn't lose the 700 million but as already said its a drop in the bucket and worth the money in the long run. Anyways I don't want to turn this into a whole political debate or anything, I just wanted to reiterate my post.

I feel bad for anyone that worked on the rocket and/or payload. To have put all that effort into something only to see it fail would be a pretty big downer.

My thoughts exactly, especially twice in a row.

Design flaws and accidents aren't indicators of incompetence. The fact that our space program has been so successful that it now hardly warrants a mention on the nightly news unless something goes wrong indicates a high level of competence.

It's about 2 dollars per person, not that big of a deal when put into perspective.

Good post. I have to give ya some of those points. I mean there really is no way for me to dispute the fact that some advances really help out on issues such as food and housing.

I guess the line I was coming from was more along the lines of how exactly does spending 700 million bucks on a rocket to launch in space help anyones life?

Again, not saying it can't just saying I believe more time should be put into this stuff to weigh the cost with the benefits. Again good post though. Definately makes me look at things a little different.
