0.5% of federal spending goes to NASA. Is that too much or not enough?

Exploration is a part of who we are as humans; we need to invest in our ability to find out about the universe.

I think .5% is way too little to be put into the funding of space exploration. There is so much to explore and not enough money put into the funding. Raise up the percentage more!!!

Space is useless, unless ist's for watching the weather, or helping with a project. Let's face it we are scared of space, we have only ever put a man on the moon once, we never did it again. We aren't doing anything with it, so why have a funding for it. Maybe a little bit of money for the satelites, but that's pretty much should do it.

I think that the cost should be lower, what with the U.S.'s giant debt. Because if it's too much, the U.S. will run out of money, and the government will have to "borrow" (aka, take and never give back) money from other coutries.

Biased question; leads to biased answers. For non-defence initiatives, the Private Sector needs to invest and pay for them lest we degenerate this great nation into another failed Communist state like USSR.

Colonists on Mars would be impossible if .5 is the funding for space exploration and knowledge. We need to further our existence and the only way for that is to learn to live on other planets besides our own. Up the budget.
