We could have run NASA for a decade on the money it took to fight the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq simultaneously for one month.

That's a lazy criticism. We could've done it if we had a sensible drug policy. We could have have better government health care. We could've done it if we had a more scrupulous tax reform. We could've done it if we didn't give tax breaks to religious organizations. We could have destroyed Russia instead. We could've sterilized idiots instead. We could've done a lot of things.

It really isn't very relevant to the news story though...

Nope, but it's a damn good point. The Nasa budget is shit. If every american donated one more penny than what is allotted from their taxes the budget would double. So… someone's bad day at work maybe wouldn't have happened today, lol. (poor person(s), curious on the outcome of events on the rocket).

Actually advocated by some war-mongering Republicans.

Right.

It's a government fuck up. Every government fuck up is Obama's fault according to Republicans, because reasons. Thus the Republicans will blame this on Obama eventually, which was Minimalist's point I assume. Mine was that the two wars we fought, both of which started under Republican administrations, consumed resources and the budget at a frightening pace. When compared to how terribly underfunded almost everything outside of the Pentagon is (including NASA), one has to wonder just how easily this could have been prevented had just a fraction of a fraction of the war budgets been spent elsewhere; like NASA. On top of that, how much of a terrible setback this is for the agency considering that they have so little to actually fund rocket launches, and it's one of the reasons why the Hubble replacement (the James Webb Space telescope) was almost cancelled. We can spend trillions of dollars indiscriminately blowing the shit out of brown people on the other side of the globe (which gives Republicans massive boners), but we can't be bothered to adequately fund education or space exploration.

RE: NASA rocket exploded.
I think my blood is actual boiling at the thought of retards. Every job has its fuck up. It's gonna happen. Better to keep trying better. Super thankful for no lives lost. Super bummed about the experiments. The astronauts will be fine because we've back-up.

Dumb people. Not that anyone has said anything anywhere yet. Shy

Edit. Apparently the flash in the video looks much bigger than it was due to the camera adjusting itself to the brightness.

Behold the power of the force!

So much for the myth that the private sector can do nothing wrong.

Now it's only SpaceX that can do no wrong. amiright?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
