They always waste money. Even if it wasn't a failure, what they are doing is a waste of money in general. I guess the 200 million people Struggling and starving in life doesn't cross these " people " minds.
If anything is going to end world hunger, its going to be the discoveries NASA sponsored companies make when they try and get man to mars or set any sort of permanent moon base. Or we could blindly throw money into poor countries and hope the food gets to people. Your choice I guess.
On a side note, I love how a forum full of high end computer users is calling nasa a waste of money. Nevermind nasa's contributions to starting the trend for the miniaturization of computers in a time when people though the world only needed 5. Hypocrisy and ignorance incarnate.
