    What percentage of the national budget is NASA's space programs?

    I don't think It'll happen in the US because we don't trust our government. We are a country of skeptics, raised by skeptics, founded by skeptics. - Amaroq

        ...And this does what to improve our lives on earth? I think its pointless too. Imagine all the food stamps people could get with that kinda money!

          Instead of spending it on the moon, how about giving it back to the people and bailing them out vice the big wig companies.

          One year of not reasearching space will not hurt us, however one year of not reasearching space will greatly help us financially!

            NASA is a fraction of one percent of the national budget. Its work leads to important advances in science and technology. Why should we stop advancing knowledge and capability to give handouts to people who, for the most part, haven't earned anything?

                    The moon will be fine, but It will add one more crater under its belt. Space exploration is important, much of our technological and medical stuff came as a result of NASA and space exploration. Its well worth the small fraction being spent on it, and NASA has improved aviation safety and aviation in general.

                      NASA Will Bomb Moon on Friday


                      (Oct. 7) -- A NASA probe is about to fire a missile into the moon and you might be able to get a glimpse of the impact.

                      The missile released by the Lunar CRater Observing and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) will slam into the moon's south pole Friday, sending up a plume of debris several miles high. Instruments on the booster trailing the missile will analyze the debris and, before also crashing into the lunar surface, will relay the data to the LCROSS orbiter.

                      Researchers hope the blast will reveal evidence of underground water deposits. Previous missions have confirmed traces of water on the surface and some scientists believe there could be billions of tons of ice locked away in the deep, shadowy craters of the lunar poles. That ice might be a source of drinking water and fuel for astronauts, if they ever return to the moon.

                      There's nothing new about objects hitting the moon. Comets have bombarded the lunar surface for billions of years, leaving it riddled with craters. Those comets could be the source of the water, although there are competing theories, according to SPACE.com.

                      Unlike comet impacts, NASA knows exactly where and when its missile will strike the moon -- the crater Cabeus A at 7:30 EDT Friday morning. That means amateur observers with telescopes should be able to see the flash when the bomb hits. NASA has details about how to observe the event.

                          So they are going to smash a million dollar satalite into the moon just to see if there is water?

                            Yep. They should fly out here, it's much closer.

                              They should load the spacecraft up with certain individuals! Then we'd be getting our money's worth.

                                Watch them blow a chunk off and big giant piece of the moon heads to earth. Karma would be a b*tch if that happened.
