  • Yeah, we have enough people to worry about here on earth w/o worrying about space aliens. That money could be put to much better use.

  • The space program is the ONLY segment of the government that actually generates any kind of profit. Why would you write off the only think that can actually MAKE money as a waste of money?

  • "I guess you believe we went to the moon to. LOL "

    lol, of course we did. Whether or not there is extraterrestrial life out there, the space program plays an important role in our world. Learning as much as we can about all we can (space included) can only benefit us. Who knows what we can learn that can help improve life here on earth? Why wouldn't better understanding our world and the universe its part of be a good thing? How can understanding and information ever be bad? Perhaps the information isn't something you personally care about, but its not just "a waste". Just because you're not immediately effected by what we find and learn through our space exploration doesn't mean its not bringing results that are beneficial to society in some way.

  • If you don't really want to hear anyone else's opinion, why bother even asking?

  • Yikes you think exploring our universe is a waste of money? Do you also think that knowing how the weather works is a waste of money? Or say education?
