When going into space cures cancer, AIDS, Sickle Cell, etc.... call me! Until then, I don't think spending millions of money to see what is on other planets is worth it. NO OFFENCE to ANYONE on here. I understand the feelings of people that really want something to come out of all of this and yes, I know that something will, but, until we can use money to cure diseases that we have here, on Earth, I don't think we need to worry about what kind of rocks or where the water is or whatever, on other planets. Yes,I'm very hardened on things like this, and I'm sorry if I offend anyone, I really don't mean too. My mom dad at age 54 after never smoking, always excersising and rarely drinking to Colon Cancer. They don't know why though. I want more money into these disease centers to find out WHY they are dying!! All of them have to raise there own money and hope for grants to do their research.
Okay, I'll stop being a grump.
I know it's neat to find evidence that their may be living beings on other planets, I just want to help what and who we have here with some of that money first until there is a solid reason to do otherwise.

I feel a bit out of my league.... you guys seem to have your finger on the pulse, me, just a humble and maybe a bit uninformed opinion on things.

You guys are great, this is one forum I enjoy and never expected to get more than food tips and ideas from it. Instead, I feel a family here and that is really neat!!!!

TG you are not offending anyone. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and you opinion is just as valuable as anyone elses.

While space exploration may not have cured any diseases (yet) it had improved medical technology in many many ways and I do not doubt that with further exploration we may see cures come out of space.

Here is one article that talks about medical advances from pace makers to the implantable insulin pump and others.
