NASA gets more than $17 billion each year in annual funding. That translates into about $30 million from Denver taxpayers and $245 million from Colorado taxpayers. A significant portion of that is used to "Look for signs of life in other planetary systems" - one of the NASA objectives previously stated on its web site. NASA's web site has also stated "we are honest and ethical in all that we do".
And yet, NASA requests and allocates funding to "look for signs of life in other planetary systems", while at the same time hiding, destroying or altering evidence of "signs of life" that it has already found.
whistle-blowers formerly with Top Secret security clearance have revealed that NASA has hidden, destroyed, or altered videos or photos that contained images of UFOs or extraterrestrial life forms.
But delegates pointed out that the search for life elsewhere in the universe captivates the public and is central to President George W Bush's Vision for Space Exploration, a plan to send people back to the Moon and on to Mars. "I think most people see astrobiology as being front and centre to the Vision for Space Exploration," Pilcher agreed.
Planetary Science is a grand human enterprise that seeks to discover the nature and origin of the celestial bodies among which we live, and to explore whether life exists beyond Earth. The scientific imperative for Planetary Science, the quest to understand our origins, is universal. How did we get here? Are we alone? What does the future hold? These overarching questions lead to more focused, fundamental science questions about our solar system: How did the Sun's family of planets and minor bodies originate? How did the solar system evolve to its current diverse state? What are the characteristics of the solar system that led to the origin of life? How did life begin and evolve on Earth and has it evolved elsewhere in the solar system? What are the hazards and resources in the solar system environment that will affect the extension of human presence into space?
