    Massive waste of money. Let's put our people to work on the ground rebuilding our highways and infrastructure. Boys playing with firecrackers, is all it is

    Years ago, a couple of friends of mine worked for a sub-contractor to JPL and they built a device for the Mars Rover.

    Not sure what it was but, they said it was about the size of a brick and had 400 moving parts.

    They were telling me how, they would launch the hardware as soon as it was ready and then, have 2 years to work on the computer programs to run the rover while it was on it's way to Mars.

    They had 2 full scale rovers, one that was launched and one that was there with them.

    They would write the programs and load it into the rover and then tweak it as needed and then, upload it to the launched rover when all the bugs were worked out.

    I found that interesting.

    Why not drastically cut military/defence spending then? The NASA budget is just a small fraction of what is wasted on the military, I think it was reported the the Air Conditioning costs for the military is more than the NASA budget.
