People believe NASA is not worth the funding. However, if you consider the facts- NASA has helped the U.S.A, far more than it has hurt it. NASA's funding is only 19 Billion, and if you compare that to say, our spending on Nuclear Weapons (25 billion) or our Department of Education (64 Billion), it is a very small amount. NASA also has an enormous economic return. For every one dollar spent on NASA, eight to ten return to the economy. There is also the fact that NASA has advanced our technology to huge extents. For instance- without it, we wouldn't have had the modern day computers and software. Third, there is the fact that NASA has continuously advanced our fields of science. For my final argument in this session, NASA protects us from NEO (Near Earth Objects). If an asteroid of 6 miles wide was on a collision course with Earth, what could stop it. Nuking might result in 1 mile wide asteroid fragments hitting Earth. NASA can redirect it, however, and move it away from our planet.

i think NASA should not be shut down because NASA is what basically gave us lots of technology. they also plan of making a robot or something that collects all the space trash because that is becoming a problem.
