    The money would have been much better spent on a dozen nuclear power plants, and the remainder spent on wounded American veterans.

    IMO every penny spent on the space exploration program since probably 1980 has been wasted. Just a national "stimulus program".
    I would say not "national Stimulus" but National Pride, AKA look at what we did.... The space program has spearheaded new sciences, and materials that were invented for the space program and were sent to the civilian market, so it has not been a total wash, pricey but not a waste...
    Were we on the moon??? well in the paper yesterday there was a story of how they are able to see the American flags left behind by 5 of the 6 missions, (they burned some space telescope time) as well as the equipment left behind, slightly hard to fake that, but there is photo shop....

    So in the spirit of questioning all that we are spoon fed by the main-stream media, what say you on this topic?

    I don't think two billion would build many power plants, though. And, to Eagleeyes, where is Tesla's free energy?

    Is there oil on Mars? Can we build a pipeline? What practical purpose did this serve?

    who gives a crap about oil, besides the oil companies and politicians. the sooner we run out of the crap the sooner we'll get to working on better alternatives, in force.

    as for practical purpose, whether you like it or not, sooner or later there will be colonies on mars. the sooner we start planning (in this case studying/testing the environment/etc) for it the better.

    plus, can you imagine what would happen if the china commies got there first? a red planet full of red commies? :) they'd claim complete ownership of the planet and their first landing payload would be SAM sites. :)

    it has been suppressed by our own government so crown corporations can control how we access electricity and how much we will have to pay to have it as well ;(
