Every day — every single day, it seems — I see a note on Twitter, or get email, or hear someone on TV asking why we bother spending so much money on NASA. Billions of dollars! We should be spending that money right here on Earth!
This argument is wrong in every conceivable way.Ignoring that we do spend that money here on Earth, ignoring that NASA’s budget is far less than 1% of the national budget, ignoring that the amount we spend on NASA in a year is less than we spend on air conditioning tents in Afghanistan, ignoring that we spend five times as much on tobacco in a year than we do on space exploration… this argument is still dead wrong. Why?...

If Jesus wanted us to go to space he would have put the Vatican on the moon.

I usually don't like these types of videos with the cheesy inspirational music, but I like the message and the speaker.
