    2.5 billion is actually not that much money compared to what our government pours money into.

    The plans that are inforced by our government and president have out summed hundreds of times over the cost of this mission and look how far that extra money for hungry mouths has gotten us. The people who get all that free food have learned that they can sit back while we make the money that goes into there pockets. I am not trying to be mean to anyone person who may be down on there luck but these overly expensive packages for the feeding of the hungry has led to the hard working american to get the short hand. I mean not even the people that work hard all there lives are going to be able to get social security because the government is only looking out for the people who vote for them and there are a lot of hungry people willing to spend an hour of there lives to go vote so they can get a free ride. Those are personally my thoughts, not trying to hurt any ones feelings.

    haha I knew a rant would get started over this! Look, it's good that we pioneer into space because one day that will save are ***** from the sun, which is getting 5% hotter every billion years or so. In 1 million years we won't be able to live here in comfort and the only thing that will save us is our know-how in space travel. Besides, look at how space travel has advanced our technology! To name a few theres cancer radiation, artificial limbs, chemical detection techniques, highway safety, land mine removal, fire resistant metal and materials, water purification, software improvement, GPS, medicine, and of course, temper pedic foam. Theres many more that have all affected everyones lives. Just think of how many lives can be saved with all those? Sure, theres hungry people out there, but in the end a lot of those people would be desceased if it weren't for all these technological developments that space has given us. Heck, the new laser used to zap away martian rocks could one day be used to cut a victim free from earthquake rubble.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    What we don't see in the image of Picard, is the comfort he is sitting in, because his rear is resting on a space program developed cushion.

    I think we should go to Vulcan instead of Mars.
