I'd love to know how many BILLIONS of dollars have been spent in the last 30 or so years....
What do they think they're gonna find out there....Oooohhhh a big rock orbiting in outer space, we must explore...-pushes taped glasses back up nose-
The money could be spent better elsewhere is all I'm saying...

It's not a matter of what we find in space, it's what we learn during the journey. Visit the following site. You might find it enlightening.
That is a cool link....I'd recommend it to cavemen like me
I just have a hard time believing that we only spend 0.8% of our budget on the space program....Do you have a link for that?
I found a couple links that mention it, but I didn't actually see the budget. One article said "less than 1%" and another arcticle said ".7%".
