nooo i dont think people and the goverment should spend money on space exploration. People will do whatever they want with money but the goverment shouldnt spend that much on it thats from taxes, they should put it into a more productive investment.

Wait, first you were talking about CEOs and private citizens wasting their money on this, and now you have changed it to saying the government shouldn't waste money on space...

Make up your mind about what we're proving you wrong about.

So doesnt that mean you intentionally started a conflict? Thats a strike-worthy offense nowadays.

You do realize that the first time we land a mining platform on an asteroid, the cost for the past 40 years of space exploration will be paid for in a week don't you?

Who the hell is stupid enough to pay 20 million dollars to go into space with the russians?  Its like paying to get put in a death trap.

What's the point of building multi-million dollar estates then? Having many expensive cars? Owning your own jet? Owning a yacht? Many wealthy people have at least some of what I just listed. All of those things could be used to feed the children, cancer research, etc, etc. However, in the end, it is still THEIR money. They have the right to do with it what they wish.

Space exploration is extremely helpful and important.

ANd I don't see why the U.S.A has to spend all of their money on other countries who happened to suck at getting money. It just a misfortune and it sucks that it happens, but thats how the world works.

Whoa that is exactly what I was thinking

Edit: Who would pay 100 million for a short trip when they could buy a space ship from scaled composites. (I dont know the technical name or if there is one. im referring to space ship one and virgin space ship style.)
