My thoughts is that space exploration is indeed important but the vision should be that it needs to be for the right reasons and at the right time.

The peoples that have these business here on Earth and the rights up there are the ones that should pay for it not the tax-payers.


I totally respect your opinion, but the argument that "the money would be better spent on xxxxxx" and that "the tax-payers shouldn't pay for it" is really moot. NASA's budget will not significantly change, and that 10 billion would have been spent on other NASA projects anyways. Plus, as I mentioned in an earlier post, there are many other worse things that the government is blowing billions on.

I agree that the private sector should be doing this ... but they should be doing it AS WELL as NASA. Competition never hurts. Well, unless you're a Russian spy ...
