Even if it is fully funded, Muslims still won't like us

Fuck NASA

Private enterprise should be the only way to space.

If China beats us there, oh well.

We need to totally eliminate NASA and replace it with a space program with *real* goals.

After you exterminate every tax payer funded FSA program, maybe we'll take about fucking NASA, whom by the way has actually produced things that benefited Tax payers, something the FSA will never ever do.

While I agree, NASA is about the least offensive way to spend the money that's stolen from us.  I would cut most everything else before hard science research and NASA.

The problem is that rather than throwing extra funds at NASA we should be freeing up those resources by getting rid of wasteful programs. At this point I think that it is also becoming obvious that private companies are likely a better avenue than some bloated government beurocracy that will spend all it time and money on liberal social engineering rather than accomplishing anything good in science.

NASA is holding the private sector back actually.


There is no reason to innovate when you have the gumbint being your launcher.

Look how fast things evolved once we pulled the plug on the stupid Space Truck.

Things need to into space.  If the government doesn't provide it, someone will figure out a way to do it.

But for now, all the satellite companies have been the proverbial FSA of space.

Right wing southerners should love the idea of Defunding NASA.

From a secular point of view, all this earth science is useless and contradictory.

NASA or goverment regulation?

Saying that "oh we don't need rockets we'll just get NASA to launch it" is causing private industry to stagnate while companies like SpaceX perfect their "product" everyday is laughable.

Fully fund NASA and cut the green bullshit, encourage private companies, competion drives innovation. Maybe I have a soft spot for NASA, and being sentimental will only get you so far, but I will bet you money that the inspiration/innovation alone that NASA sparked is worth it.

NASA needs to be fully funded, but they do NOT need to be in the business of launching satellites.  They should be exploring, period.  Exploitation should be left to the private sector.

Do you really believe that government was launching every satellite?

You are aware that the "science" underpinning man made global warming has be shown to be junk science do you not?  Perhaps I misunderstand your comment.

No.





I'm aware that warming is happening.





I'm aware of the limitations of climate models.





I'm not aware of the whole thing being a conspiracy and NASA being stupid for doing research in the area.



When NASA is stuck in LEO...what else do you expect them to do other than study the earth?

In fiscal year 2011, the U.S. government allocated the following amounts for aid:

Total economic and military assistance: $49.5 billion

   Total military assistance: $17.8 billion
   Total economic assistance: $31.7 billion
-----------------------------------------------------------------

The N.A.S.A. budget is about 18 billion. We give away three times that to people that hate us every year. Bang for the buck, of all government projects, the N.A.S.A. is right up there with the highest returns.

I agree. One of the best minds we have.

As to NASAs role, they need to be exploring space and sharing the info with private American enterprises so they can exploit resources and further human expansion off planet. Permanent base on the Moon, same on Mars and keep going........
