    Oddly enough we've sent quite a few astronauts through the Van Allens and outside them and they lived.

    In my opinion refunding NASA and space exploration is a very good idea as it develops new technologies.

    I'm absolutely fine with that as soon as someone comes up with a way to pay for it.

    Shift it from the military and all the political-green energy graft for starters. It might even be more worthwhile than funding studying Chinese prostitutes.

    Oh, and I'd be happy if my taxes went towards manned space exploration (to see something tangible for my tax dollars like astronauts on Mars or the like)

    The too hard, too dangerous, too inconvenient, too expensive crowd can stay back here and continue in the same vicious circle of cultural debauchery while the earth burns up (or freezes) and the rest of us go out and conquest the galaxies

    It's not like when we invaded the US, and instigated land grabs and property stakes...

    Since we planted a flag there first...does the US government own the moon?
