Ok MJ! My ship should be built right after the 2nd comming of Jesus is due. By that time we could ask Him to see if pizza dough will rise in the vaccum of space!!!
I wonder...... if the yeast survives.... Im sure it can rise! I'll write NASA so they can build a probe that shoots out pizza dough (made by MJ of course) at one of the moons of Jupiter (its warmer than most planets so it might help it rise. LOL!!!!!!!!)

Look. I'll put in 1/4 of my pay check (when I get another job. ) into NASA if it develops a gene that can make most women have freckles with red hair. OR......

MMMMMMM Space Pizza

Sush, I am not sure why you are downplaying the "offshoots". Aren't these things worth anything? They are currently saving millions of lives.

Also I am not sure where this $3.5 billion number is coming from. Did you read that somewhere?

I got the figure from MSNBCs coverage. Its on the SPACE page.

Here is what youre saying.......
Say we build the Titanic to explore the ocean waves or something. Darn thing hits an iceburg and sinks. What did we get out of it? A 500 million dollar discovery that we should put more lifeboats on a cruise ship and Leonardo DiCaprio cant act.

We don't need to spend 500 mil to find out the LD can't act

That is not at all what I am saying. To go along with your analogy, Out of that situation we would gain knowledge of how to prevent tradgedys like that in the future. How to build better lifeboats. How to contruct better life preservers. The alternative would be never leaving our backyard. Staying in the same spot we have always been instead of going out and exploring and learning new things.

DS you seem to be all for ocean exploration. The same problems can happen with that as with space exploration.

I can only wonder if the families of the "alien astronauts" who crashed into the New Mexico desert near Roswell in 1947 thought their loved one's lives were worth the sacrifice to explore distant regions of space in search of answers to the origins of the universe, possibly their origins, and to determine if they were alone in the universe?

Should money be spent to explore the unknown? I don't know ... but without both the money and the exploration - we might still be living with the idea that the earth is flat.

Right!!! I agree GB! So lets spend 500 mil. on something to explore the ocean and NOT 3.5 Billion on a "Planet Blow-Hole" finder!
