Cool picture, so I will not mention the waste of money that space exploration is, or the burden it places on the hard working taxpayers, or how the money could be better spent.

Cool pic

I don't know John, NASA may cost but a lot is owed to them and they deserve the budget. I may be wrong on this but I thought that NASA actually made more than they lost - But hey, I'm a Brit and it isn't costing me, and I could be well off base with that.

A few projects that NASA either came up with or were involved in..

Digital imaging breast biopsy system, developed from Hubble Space Telescope technology

Tiny transmitters to monitor the fetus inside the womb

Laser angioplasty, using fiber-optic catheters

Forceps with fiber optics that let doctors measure the pressure applied to a baby's head during delivery

Cool suit to lower body temperature in treatment of various conditions

Voice-controlled wheelchairs

Light-emitting diodes (LED) for help in brain cancer surgery

Foam used to insulate space shuttle external tanks for less expensive, better molds for artificial arms and legs

Programmable pacemakers

Tools for cataract surgery

Quote:
A report by the Space Foundation estimated that NASA contributed $180 billion to the economy in 2005. More than 60% of this came from commercial goods and services created by companies related from space technology. This means that each dollar of NASA spending creates $10 of benefit in the economy. NASA spending created the satellite communications which allows not only radio and television, but also telemedicine, GPS navigation, weather forecasts, and defense.
As a Brit looking overseas, I would have thought that NASA is one of the biggest contributions that the US has given the planet.

... or not stolen in the first place. LOL!

I believe that space exploration is imperative to broadening our understanding, but it would be better if it were privately funded by a generous philanthropist who made their discoveries public knowledge.

Why do you say space exploration is a waste of money? Do you believe mankind can stay on earth for all eternity? Do you believe earth has infinite resources for infinite generations?

Sooner or later Earth will be overpopulated, resources will run out, and eventually earth will be destroyed, either by asteroids, sun dying or other space related matters. Most of the armageddon sceonarios wont happend in our lifetime, or any generations soon, but eventually earth will die, and so will mankind, unless we have spread our basket of eggs across the galaxies.

There should rather have been a world space program, where all countries chipped in to get a bigger and more efficient space program, more shuttles, more telescopes etc, and more research to lightspeed travel and whatnot, so that once we find a new home, we can actually travel there.

just my 2 cents

It's fantastic! The idea of miniaturising a grand event as a launch of a capsule or rocket of some sort. The photographer sure knows his stuff.
