    Don't tell anyone, but the space race was basically a cover for ICBM research.

    Be that as it may it was still a worthy endeavor.

    I know more than a few of the Engineers in Houston and these guys are our best amd brightest.

    Plus my Dad worked in the Appollo missions as a Engineer for NASA.

    Lockheed and Boeing have been customers of mine for 15 years.

    I don't mind Federal dollars being spent on Space exploration one bit.

    Motivating a younger Generation to excell in Science, Mathematics is a worthy investment.

    Let's get mining an asteroid. All the H3 and rare earth metals we could ever use.

    There are already private companies working on that.

    What other peoples money? Are you saying that Fenton doesnt pay taxes too? Since when do you get to dictate what people want to fund through their taxes?

    I don't buy into the BS Fiscal Stimulus Keynesian " solutions " that so many here continue to defend.

    I don't support Government spending on Substandard Technologies that are being driven by ideology and the ridiculous false narrative of AGW.

    And Government spending on things like a growing entitlement class is a TERRIBLE investment.

    But I'm not opposed to all Government spending.

    NASA has been around since the 60s and we've as a society benefited greatly from the technology that came out of US Space exploration.

    The Moon missions were made possible with sure, allot of Government spending but it wasn't the Government that got Astronauts there and back 6 times safely

    It was the private sector. It was Competition between Companies who were fighting for those contracts and it was the employees who were given the freedom to be truly innovative that pushed that technology to its limits.

    Its why the Soviets stopped at low altitudes while we went onto the Moon. How innovative can you be when you have a gun to your head ?

    It was one American Scientists that programmed the computer in the lunar lander. His innovations in writing code and building a operating system are still being used today.

    He programmed in interupts and weighted processses and subroutines based on how critical they were to the operation of the lander and he did it in the 60s.

    Windows uses interupts and weighs processes and subroutines in the same way

    An alarm went off in the Lunar Lander as they were about to descend for the first time. They all looked at him in the Control room and he said don't worry about it.

    The Computer is just kicking out non essential routines.

    It was one American Scientists who came up with the concept of a lunar lander and made it a reality.

    Werner Von Braun wanted to land the entire Appolo Rocket on the Moon.

    Unfortunately NASA has been hit pretty hard by this President. Ive seen projects scrapped, and entire 5 story buildings layed off.

    NASA inspired allot of American children to enter into Science and Engineering.

    That's slowly disappearing because now we have a administration that would rather tell these kids that they're not nor their Country exceptional. That your'e limited by the inherant social and racial injustices you have no control over.

    Thats BS.

    Star Trek inspired a lot of people to get into science and engineering too.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
