The cost for each person up there is $7.5 million per day. Most expensive hotel in the known universe.
Ya... But you're really getting value for your dollar.. Astronomy, experiments, new technologies, advancements in medicine, better maps of the earth, new metal alloys, robotics, fuck the list is endless. I am all for the expense.
The digital clocks you use to schedule your day, the gas analyzer in your smoke alarm that may save your life one day, the scratch-resistant lenses on your tv/computer/sunglasses, the shock absorption of your sneakers, the CAT & MRI technology at your local hospital, the cordless tools in your garage... and that's just scratching the surface... all technological spin-offs directly from NASA.
Plus one of the best skits on Howard ever.. When they sent Gary the Retard to the moon.

This video shows one thing very clearly; life in space is fucking tough. Our bodies just weren't built for that kind of shit.
Our bodies weren't built for that shit but our minds are sufficiently resilient to figure out ways to solve problems that come our way and create ways to adapt. Our bodies are not the biggest problem - our commitment to progress and advancement is.
The cost of the Iraq War was $720 million/day. Most expensive lie in the known universe.
Yes, but it's totally the TRUTH that Syria has tons of WMD's and we need to believe what the Obama Admin has to say about it. Because it's completely logical that the much larger Iraq had NO WMD's, but the smaller Syria is loaded to the gills with them.
