I was just wondering, I was having a debate about the universe being infinite with a friend, and I was saying you cannot know that it's infinite.

What percentage of outer space does Nasa's budget cover?
I remember in that movie armageddon with bruce willis i think they said 12% or something?

But im not sure, does anyone know?

And is that percentage, does it cover the galaxy or the universe?
And if it only covers the galaxy than how do we know there are other galaxies?

But the main question is what percentage.

Thanks

Well I have no Idea what your talking about.

Are you talking about telescopes pointing into space? As in percentage of the sky that is covered by telescopes?

I guess so
I mean we must have a faint idea about how much we are covering

There are parts of space that is under surveilance at any given time but this represents only a small percentage.
There are telescopes like the hubble that look out into space for reseach purposes and not surveilance, these telescopes can look into space any time but this has nothing to do with surveilance.
