wouldn't it make more sence to put that money into something that would help boost the economy?
it makes no sence to me that we're spending money on scientists to explore other planets rather than on scientists who can work on the earth, figure out different ways to save the enviroment and cut energy costs.
First of all, in order to seek better understanding, we need to get out of the paradigm of (political) and (monetary) reasons for current space operations. NASA, world governments and the like have all the money and power in their hands to do what they want. If we think this is all just for (political) or (money) reasons, we are blinded from the real 'truth'. Money and political stances are what the elite world 'leaders' use to blind the slave human race on the real agenda behind the space operations.
