How much money is spent each year on space programs throughout the world? What is accomplished by doing expiriments in space, we need to focus on expiriments in our natural living environment for things to be of use to the human race don't we? I think all the space exploration is waste of time and money. I've heard "we know more about the moon than the deepest parts of our own ocean". there isnt much on the moon that i've noticed but shouldnt we be focusing on problems closer to earth rather than having our heads in the clouds, well above them.
