Agreed. Humanity should focus on Space exploration together instead of U.S.A being the world Police.
Technology and innovation will free humanity from enslavement/labor eventually.
Its shameful that we as a society permit these wars to persists
End the wars now.
Actually, if you believe the conspiracy theorists, the military IS in space so some of that red is probably dedicated to exactly what you're calling
for them to do. According to them, the government back-engineered crashed flying saucers and built them under the cover of secrecy. Others say that we
captured german scientists in WWII and from them we developed a flying saucer program. Still others say that Nikola Tesla had it figured out for years
but his papers were stolen by the military, of course. Anyway, the result is that we have a secret space program, but the technology is so dangerous
that they have to keep it secret. Just imagine something that could give terrorists exactly what the want: explosive energy, easy travel, etc.
Technology of this nature would cause mass chaos on earth. That's why the military owns it.
Same thing happened to nuclear things. They put a lid on it before it got worse.
Rumor is other countries have it too, like Russia.
And that's just one reason, among others, that the miltary has so much red versus nasa.
Makes sense now. A little bit of information is a powerful thing. But too much is dangerous.
Nasa is legitimate and safe. Nothing wrong with it. There're two (or more) sides to everything.
They do have our interests in mind. But it's not simple. Nothing ever is.
Ever seen a helpless baby bird that fell from its nest and seen as the mother frantically tried to feed it and figure out what to do? Ever wonder what
happens when you don't see it?
