I affirm the resolution for 2 reasons
1) NASA Is cheap
2) NASA provides imesurable benefits for the US

contetion 1) the US spends about " a percent of its 3.4 trillion dollar budget on NASA to put that in perspective that about half a penny of every tax dollar. So we are not going to solve our 16 trillion dollar deficit by cutting NASA we won"t even make a measurable dent but to top that off where already spending 10 times less than we did during the height of the Apollo program so cutting NASA for economic benefits simply doesn"t make sense.

contetion 2) NASA provides the US with benefits diporpotinate to it's cost

benefit 1- NASA Provides us with essential information about our world and the universe. Beyond advancing human knowledge which I think is a worthy goal in its own right NASA has given us vital information such as knowledge of global warming by studying other planets such as Venus.
benefit 2- NASA tracks asteroids that pose a threat to are very existence and formulates plans to prevent these asteroids from hitting earth.
benefit 3- NASA tracks solar flares that may pose a threat to our satellites or even are entire electric grid.
benefit 4- NASA creates practical consumer goods let"s take a look at all the things we wouldn"t have if it were not for NASA. Microwaves, laser surgery, UV sunglasses, GPS, advanced solar panels, advanced thermometers and the list goes on
benefit 5- NASA might actually pay for itself- recent study actually found that from 1966-1981 there was 181 billion dollars" worth of sales as a result of NASA inventions that"s money that"s being taxed and actually helping to pay for NASA"s already miniscule funding.

thus i negate the notion that the US should cut off funding for NASA
