Sorry to be an ol' poo head.. sorta sorry.. but, I think, for the most part, that this space travel, manned or unmanned.. is a total waste of taxpayer dollars. Two point 7 BILLION can certainly be better used at home. Sure, there are some good things that come out of it.. but, looking for extra terrestrial life has/will not prove fruitful, IMO.

I'd rather spend some of those dollars looking at either the ocean or.. better yet.. 'inner space'.. or even better yet.. buying each of us a top notch brew setup..

2.7 billion is a little more than have of what we borrow, every day.

It's a drop in the bucket.

I have to disagree. I am glad that they got smart about the situation and shut down the Discovery missions to focus more on deep space travel. This is the direction that NASA needs to focus more on, sending man missions to mars.
I would much rather we spend our tax dollars on space travel rather than deep sea observations. I mean what would be better discovering a extraterrestrial life or another 5 different types of sea urchin at the bottom of the pacific.

But then again I could use a nice brew stand..

I hope the Curiosity mission finds clear-cut evidence for extraterrestrial life that undermines all the world's creation myths. That would be 2.7 billion well spent.

Space and satellite engineers find novel solutions to other-worldly problems, but I think that list misrepresents the space programs' contribution to commercial products today.

Still, I'm totally for the program. It's one of the few truly noble efforts still being pursued by mankind.

Not sure where you came up with this list, but Velcro was invented in 1948.

Who's to say that it would undermine creationism? I always thought it kind of arrogant to believe that if there is a God, we are the only planet he created life on.
