Money put into the space program creates jobs, stimulates the economy, and drives technological progress. It isn't wasted money to begin with.

Plus it boosts national pride

Lindley, sorry but what is "ROI"?
Return on Investment.

I mean, it's not like we're pouring money down a black hole here. We get plenty back out of what we put in----nationally, at least. I'm sure NASA doesn't directly see the profits, because it's not a commercial enterprise.
Think the only ones who see the profits vis a vis NASA are the companies that actually build the stuff for them
