    How the hell does that negate my statement? It doesn't. It just shows ignorance. My family member is at the forefront of electro optic research... primarily detectors. Want to know how light energy trasfers from a light wave into an image that we are able to see on a screen? Thank my family member because if it was left up to some of the people on this site we would still be using 8-Tracks.

Too many people see space as just empty, and are too worried about what's going on here. Even if you take out the revenue NASA takes in, it's a fraction of a percent of the US budget.

    Here and here are some of the inventions, just a few out of thousands.

    Some of the most notable:
    - Image processing for mammograms
    - Scratch-resistant Lenses
    - Ear Thermometer
    - Shoe Insoles
    - Long-distance Telecommunications
    - Adjustable Smoke Detector
    - Water Filters

    Typical arguments from all. Here's a question that none of you can answer. What has NASA discovered while galavanting about space that has positively impacted the human race? I don't want to hear about the offspring of their work to get to space, I don't want to hear about the products they have produced. These are all things, IMO, that could have been discovered and marketed without the actual trip to space occuring and without a NASA existing to begin with. NASA, at this point, should be relegated to satellite tracking as its sole purpose. That is a relevant program that they manage and should manage. Trips to Mars do nothing for us here. NASA is a nice to have program that should be cut (minus satellite management) until we can get our fiscal house in order. The fact of the matter is that all we have gained from the actual space trips conducted is some "ooo ahh" pictures and that's about it. This isn't the first time I've posted this and most of you were a part of that discussion as well.

    All of you can throw around the anti-science tag all you want and it won't stick. You won't find any proof of me saying anything against science. You can keep your bigotted and discriminatory opinion of "well, his username says Tea Partier so he must be anti science". I am anti-waste. The military, as it is currently spending, is a waste. But I would offer that it is much more useful than researching Mars. Most foreign aid is a waste. But I would offer that it is much more useful than researching Mars. Medicare/aid are not solvent programs. They are definitely more useful that researching Mars. Mars doesn't matter to people who see a 16 tril debt crushing our economy, among other things. Mars doesn't matter to people driving down rutted up, pothole covered interstates. Mars doesn't matter to people that are having their taxes raised to pay for "Obamacare" as it's called. These are all things that the $17.8 billion they received last year could've helped out with.House-Senate agreement would give NASA $17.8 billion in 2012 « Space Politics

    Well I'm not one of those people. I support science and education every chance I get.


    And, honestly, I don't care what you say about your family. This is the Internet. You have no proof nor reason for me to believe you other than my opinion of you, which is going downhill fast.

    Do you expect private industry to take over LEO deliveries and advance our presence there? If so, then you already have your answer. Though that's far from the only answer, it's most likely the only one you'll recognize without a protracted argument and, quit frankly, after 50 years of arguing with you people I'm sick of it.

    Talk about lack of intelligence. Have much trouble with reading comprehension? The second paragraph was all about your supposed personal relation to those projects. You have no evidence, nor can you present any evidence, that any of your family members ever did anything at all except have you.
