Advancing man's exploration of space is the reason that a lot of the little gadgets you play with today exist.

It was a crying shame when the shuttered the shuttle program without anything to replace it. And I was pretty pissed when they killed off our return to the moon. The United States should be leading the world into the exploration of other worlds. It his hardly a waste of money...but again...narrow minded people like you will certainly not be able to understand the advantages of a robust space program.





I agree with our need to explore but do we need to keep racking up the debt right now? I know my priorities are probably all fricked up but I'm not a fan of increasing debt without even coming up with a plan to pay for it.

This is like a family who can't afford their utilities bill going to frickin Disney Land.

Why in the good frick would they even consider doing something like this?


Simple fact is, for humanity to exist past the next 100 years. Things like this are necessary. You don't realize how close we are to drastically overpopulating this little rock we live on. We either expand/evolve or we die. Darwinism on its most grand scale.

OK, time for my space joke:

Astronomer Prof: "If any of you students could visit another planet which one would it be and why?

He points to a pretty red head who says: "I'd go to Mars."

Prof: Why?

Redhead: Because I've read that there might be life on Mars.

Prof: Very good. What about you, young lady?

Brunette: I'd go to Saturn.

Prof: Why?

Brunette: I'd like to see what the rings are made of.

Prof: Very good. And you, young lady, where would you go?

Blonde: The sun.

Prof: Uh, wouldn't that be too hot?

Blonde: Silly, I'd go at night.

Adherence to Islam will be a prerequisite for becoming part of the moon base team. Finding Mecca 5 times a day may be a problem when the base is facing away from the Earth though.

Not yet, but we need to have a military outpost just in case. That way we can have unmanned rovers equipped with rpg's at a moment's notice in the event that Martians produce a video that is unflattering to Muhammad.

Nope. Been lurking for years. I'll get back to lurking once I've moved on from my election frustration.

Here is a good article that gives both sides of the argument. I was mainly citing logic in that, since the population hadnt reached 1 billion until 1830 and it is 7 billion now, eventually there will be no more room(but probably resources will run out sooner) for continuing population growth.

We know more about space than we know about our oceans. We should stick to our own planet.

I don't think population is gonna be one of the problems after the next world war.

Can't we do both?

I mean NASA engineers probably dont know shite about the ocean and oceanographers probably dont know crap about space. So lets let everyone study what they got their PhD in and kill 2 birds with one vastly in dept economy
