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
Vision screening systems
Fire suits for firemen
Welding mask glass
Automobile design computer programs
Aerodynamics on multiple applications
Thermal gloves and boots
Shock absorbing helmets
Fail safe flashlights
To name but a few things. There are hundreds more.
