9. This happens every time...
I've posted about space exploration before. I learned to hold my tongue around here.

Typically, I get snide responses like "that money could be better spent on , then we'd all be better -- space is a waste of money!"

I'd rather we didn't spend as much on no-bid military contracts and unneeded wars, honestly. <sigh> But I guess I'm in the minority position when it comes to science and research funding.
