    Silly Note: I misread this as "Should Nascar have a higher budget" while browseing the topic list. My first thought was of course "They need a higher budget?" then I realized my mistake @.@ (No I did not vote in the poll)

    While spaceships are neat and all, do you have any idea how many millions of people would be put out of work if we cut ALL the defense budget? Not just the army...I assume you meant all defense spending...
    Get a grip man! It's CHEESE!

    Yeah but imagine the jobs if we pump all that money into NASA. Plus then we spend more money not wasting it on blowing stuff up.

    No, rather, countries should have organizations like NASA themselves and fund them instead. Why would we throw our money to the US? All the research they'd do would end up in the US's pockets and they'd become an even greater superpower. We definitely don't need that knowing how the US is like.

    I voted yes, because who wouldn't?

    Yes, absolutely, current budget is 4/10th of a penny on each tax dollar, seems a bit lackluster. Haven't read all 10 pages but I'll suppose someone has already linked the video of Neil deGrasse Tyson making the case for it in front of the Senate Science Comittee. If they haven't

    The US, and even the world, really need space exploration, we need inspiration, dreams for kids to become scientists, revalorize intelligence. Not demonize and ridicule it, like has unfortunately been the accelerating trend in the US for the past decades.

    Bonus videos, reaaaaaaaaaaaaally worth watching imo. If you're even just a little bit interested in space, this should resonate at least a bit.



    I really don't understand how ANYBODY could be against upping NASA's budget.

    Yes, once we learn how to manage money...we also need to open up some more deep sea exploration.

    NASA pissed away millions of dollars on some lame ass attempt to reinvent the rocket. So no they do not deserve a bigger budget. Unless they promise to deliver on Space Shuttle 2.0
    this is my signature... jealous?

    as opposed to the billions that Derpa spent making a robot that could eat plants?

    Yes and no. Space research and exploration is an amazing endeavor, and should really be pushed. I, however, do not think NASA would use the extra funding in any significant way. They play PR games and attempt to manipulate the hype machine already with shoddy science. The main problem is that people just don't care, and when the majority of people in a nation are more enthralled with the weekly adventures of "The Real Housewives of X", "Honey Boo Boo", or any of the other fucking trash that is on television, NASA will never get what it needs for space progression. The most exciting news that the populace has responded to with NASA recently was an employees haircut... As far as I'm concerned all hope is lost unless we exterminate that branch of the populace.

    I'd prefer a company that obtained its funding through multiple governments such as America, Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, etc. Could end up with 3 times the funding than NASA.

    If we reduced the U.S. military machine's budget by 10%, we could increase NASA's budget by 350%...

    The future of mankind isn't in the development of battleships; it lies in the colonization of space and other worlds.

    It is possible. But apparently it is hard as hell. Read more here.

    First we should try to get the economy right in the world. Then we can discuss if they should have more money.
