We need another jolt. We need another frontier. We need leaders that are focused on tomorrow instead of distracted by the politics of today. NASA is particular has contributed in massive ways to scientific discovery, technology, medicine, military and the economy as a whole. Above all that, NASA has rewritten the history books regarding what is humanly possible and inspired generations to dream about our future in space. It is a force of nature like none other. The problem is, NASA currently makes up HALF OF A PENNY of the American tax dollar. In comparison, the military takes up 26 cents. We need to refocus our priorities. Just by doubling the budget to a SINGLE PENNY could mean multiple launch vehicles, trips to the Moon, a mission to Mars soon, missions to asteroids, probes to Europa and so much more. We wouldn’t have to pick and choose what gets funded, we could do it all. Imagine the jolt that would cause for our species.
