I dont think it would be worth 3.5 billion to find out that there MIGHT be life in or on a distant moon. Not even worth spending $10,000 to me. You have to sell me on this. Its like saying Sushi..... I have an automatic nose picker made just for YOU! How much is it worth? I'll pay a buck because its funny looking. But I dont need it.
NOW..... if it discovered cute alien red heads then its worth every darn penny! I could use THAT. I cant USE a microbe. I dont NEED a microbe. And why spend 3.5 billion to search for one that Im not sure even exists?!

And Im not looking for feedback on every probe. My question is has ANY of these probes helped humanity? ANY of them?! I havent heard of anything except geeks like ME saying..... hey..... thats kinda neat.

My tax dollar (to me) would be better spent helping to feed someone that has no food, or that has no shelter or the means to supply shelter for themselves. Or folks that have had a bad run of things (victims of disaster). I think exploration is fine, but not at the expense of human life, which so often to me seems to be put on the back burner. Maybe if we spent a billion dollars to take care of our own, then spent 50 thousand on space exploration? I don't doubt the value of exploration, just think our priorities are a bit mixed up from a goverment perspective.

Yikes!

Space exploration actually HAS helped feed people. Hydoponics was developed by the pace program as a way to grow food in space without soil. This is now a huge way in which food is being grown that is healthier and less prone to disease.

Like I said, I never doubt the value of exploration.... I just doubt the ability of our government to use our money wisely.

GB sattie is talking about probes I believe. Not about manned flights into space. Also, they PROVED that hydroponics work in space. They didnt discover it. At least from what I recall. Im going to have to seach that topic.

LOL that is another topic altogether that I bet most of us would agree with you on, but lets make sure to not let this get political as that goes against our community policies

No it was not discovered in space, but it came to fruition because of space exploration.

I would be referring to any space exploration... be it to the moon or where ever... man or unmanned.

I am gonna bail out of this one before I make to many folks sour. I think it is a great topic and some very valid points are made.

Cheers!
