It's hard to imagine how far we would be if we had 44BLN a year for research instead of military, but it's hard to deny that we have better scientific development now than anytime before.

Well technically, war gives better research. History shows that. I am still against all the wars though, but looking back at WWI & WWII, we probably wouldn't have had as capable airplanes, jet engines, complex suspension systems, rocket technology (For good and worse), and a lot of technologies i forgot about.

The point from which humanity started to care about science well enough for it to be relevant happens to be just few hundred years away from now. Science used to have to rely on private funding only so obviously war research, conducted by powerful countries with huge investments would appear to be more efficient. Note that wars you pointed out are pretty recent. But times are changing and we invest more and more into science.

gotta be honest here, if the radical mr. abdul "super religious and uneducated" muhammed gets his hands on nuclear weapons without any resistance, i'd say it is woth $44 billion to keep him from getting those and throwing them on everybody that isn't as stupid as him.
User avatar
#128 - Blargosnarf (09/30/2014) [-]
But the incompetence of the several decade mission is very prominent, it's true that if Muhamed had access he would be more than willing, but when we investigated there was very little sign of any nuclear activity within the entire country... and it took ten years to determine that. We just "so happen" to find some good resources we could secure for ourselves with the excuse of fighting the Taliban. Before it's said that we could be securing the resources for ourselves so that the Taliban never received them, the oil fields belong to the fucking people of the country, not the invaders, until a trade for equal payment is established.

It's more like a strawman. Misinterpreting his argument to mean 'We should cut spending on NASA to continue funding the Iraq war' to make it easier to attack.
User avatar
#121 - Blargosnarf (09/30/2014) [-]
That wasn't really my intention for my argument, I guess I wanted to make it look like he's barking up the wrong tree, bringing more attention to a small problem as a big problem get's brushed away.
User avatar
#130 - lazypaul (09/30/2014) [-]
But in the context of this post the Iraq war is irrelevant because we are talking about NASA. If you believe that NASA is a problem then it is still a problem regardless of bigger problems existing.
User avatar
#132 - Blargosnarf (09/30/2014) [-]
I never intended this post to blow up so much >.>, I don't believe NASA spending is a problem, in fact I stated lower that I believe it should receive more funding than what it does. He was talking as if 18.4 B is a huge number wherein I shown that it's quite insignificant compared to other spending numbers.

I understand I'm hardly in a position to criticize, as all I know is from third party talking and biased media coverage, but if I may speak my opinion... we're not doing a very good job.

To be fair, India managed to get a probe around Mars at the same time as NASA did, using like one-tenth of the budget.
User avatar
#51 - Snowplows (09/30/2014) [-]
But India's mission is simply a satellite orbiting mars. The US landed a mobile science laboratory capable of teaching us about the history of mars. Not to mention how hard it is to get something to land safely on a different planet.

#93 - thewulfman (09/30/2014) [-]
Especially Mars. Thanks to Mars' atmosphere being a little bitch and being so relatively thin, it's been hard to deal with. We've lost several satellites and landers on Mars missions.

I had a feeling there might've been a difference like that but I was too lazy to look into it. Thank you for posting.
#137 - anon (09/30/2014) [-]
oh wait forgot the most important thing!

it has a dedicated camera for taking selfies
#136 - anon (09/30/2014) [-]
they had to land that thing a different planet and not crash it with about 20 minute delay.

that thing is like the other guy said is a mobile science laboratory, it is 899 kg (1,982 lb) heavy and can continously work for a minimum of 14 years day and night.

it a has a powerful laser which can vaporize rocks at over 7m (23 ft) away. it can analyize everything by itself. and it also has 17 different cameras on it.

and that's not even close to be all... so yea... there is a difference
#90 - anon (09/30/2014) [-]
Yeah Indias satellite does jack and shit 30lbs of instruments compared to the U.S. 140 lbs. Also the instruments on the Indian satellite are cheap and simple but provide nothing really useful (it's a proof they can do it more then anything else) . Also India used a shitty orbit to cheapen the mission (72 hour orbit (mostly spent too far away form the planet) compared to the U.S. 4.5 hour orbit. And they pay engineers somewhere near what would be called minimum wage in the U.S.

I think we all can agree our government has no idea how to manage money

They know exactly how to manage money, it's just that they don't give a fuck about 99% of the population

#28 - slias (09/30/2014) [-]
Which is something that the various hostile factions in the middle east had the actually had the capacity to threaten? As far as I'm aware we've lost freedoms as a result of our own politicians using these conflicts to terrorise people into docility. Overall we've suffered a net loss in freedom, rather than the preservation of freedom that you seem to be implying.

Those wars will never stop nor will other countries involvement stop.
in fact the only way i could see war stopped would be uniting the world under one banner and that...that wont work.
