Should NASA keep spending millions of dollars on space exploration?
Debate Rounds (3)
First off this is a loaded question, NASA is not just space exploration, they work on space stations, satellites, aeronautics, scientific research, earth science, energy management, aircraft, telescopes, and even news and TV.
Also NASA has an annual budget of 17.8 billion dollars
Out of that 17.8 billion dollars $3.8 billion is allocated for space exploration.
NASA is not spending millions of dollars, they are spending BILLIONS. Millions are limited to 1,000,000 - 999,999,999 which raises a problem.
And regardless, they SHOULDN'T spend millions, they shouldn't have to it is not their obligation to spend millions.
NASA has budgets for certain things, it would be in NASA's interest to spend what is necessary and not just spend millions because they usually need to spend more.
Also when NASA spends, they lose money, NASA should have more money allocated for space exploration, not less.
NASA also wants to spend less, it cost millions just to launch into space.
NASA has been getting cut and shouldn't be stuck in the millions. Millions may sound like a lot for the average Joe, but for NASA they are a organization that has many financial burdens. If they start limiting themselves to millions they wouldn't have much of a space exploration project.
It already cost over 450 million just to launch a shuttle, limit NASA to millions and they won't even be able to have shuttles, and shuttles are only low earth orbit! There wouldn't be much for NASA to explore with only millions to thrive on even with their efforts to use as little as possible.
Millions are just not enough.
Just my 2 million cents.
Oh, you meant to say billions?
So I'm assuming this isn't a product of lack of knowledge or unmindfulness to the more accurate amount, and just an honest mistake where you accidnently pressed m instead of b two times.
If you truly intend to express billions, then we should end this debate.
