Some say we ought to stop space exploration until we solve our problems at home. The real question is how many of these problems can we solve with less than 1 percent of the federal budget? To say that we should wait to explore space until we solve all our problems is to say we’re not going to do it at all.
Timothy Ferris, Author, quoted in The Palm Beach Daily News

Conservative estimates are for every dollar the U.S. government spends on the space program, it receives $7 back in the form of corporate and personal income taxes from increased jobs and economic growth.
Steven Stiefel, Sand Mountain Reporte
