Default Re: What, no love for shuttle launches?

I think we should scrap the space program and give the money to welfare recipients so they can buy bigger HDTV's and drink more 40's.

Seriously, anyone who thinks the space program is a waste is a waste of space themselves. The space program is DIRECTLY involved in the creation/invention of:

TV satellite dishes
Medical Imaging
Vision screening systems
Thermometers
Fire suits for firemen
Smoke detectors
Welding mask glass
Automobile design computer programs
Cordless tools
Aerodynamics on multiple applications
Thermal gloves and boots
Shock absorbing helmets
Ski boots
Fail safe flashlights
Invisible braces
Joysticks
Advanced plastics/ceramics

To name but a few things. There are hundreds more.
