Ok to be fair, what is going to be done with this new data?
How has ANY of these probes
I do not disagree its important to discover and search. But lets search for a purpose (ie: to find new medicine etc).

What are we looking for out there that is more important than discovering what we have here? It just seems like a horrible strategy for discovering anything worth our time.
Lets discover a way to get us away from oil dependancy.
Lets discover a way to find something on earth that will cure or help people.
Lets find a way for the poor to afford medication.
