It should be noted: when Sputnik went up our poverty rate was 23%. The census reports that in 1969 (moon landing) it was 12.2% despite billions for space. Since then, NASA, on a shoestring budget, has explored the moon, sun, planets, asteroids, launched a space station and two vessels beyond the Solar System and identified thousands of exoplanets. During this same time we've spent trillions(not billions) to alleviate poverty and the result? After rising in the Obama years we are back to 1969 numbers. You'd think anyone with an IQ > 1 would see the discrepancy and ask, "WHat are we doing wrong?"

Never deny a diagnosis, but do deny the negative verdict that may go with it.

Amazing how watching that with that soundtrack in the background can bring a lump to a mans throat 50 years later, but.....it seems a rather well kept secret that ..well ..the Nazis helped to put man on the moon, we can only imagine if Von Braun had insisted on the Swastika being planted in place of the the stars and stripes

Perhaps the best general presentation of the space program ever! It is hard to conceive of the vision, work and sheer genius that went into this incredible feat. I wondered why they included so much from the "why spend money on space when folks are poor" crowd until I realized this was the foundation for the quick demise of manned space flights. History will look back and shake its head at the ease with which emotion, fear and guilt won out. As long as people exist, there will be poor and rich, those with glamorous lives and those with boring ones, those curious about the universe and those who couldn't care less.

The only way to get mercy from Chuck Norris is to say his name three times in Chuckenese. Mispronouncing will only make your fate worse.
