Say hello to Congress—who writes the checks in billions of dollars to support a nuclear arms program that would never be used by even the most radical governments that recognize mutual total destruction. Why is NASA still supported with billions of dollars when the federal infrastructure is crumbling (bridges, highways, 400-year old piping that feeds fresh water out sewage in)?

Life on other planets that observe us must be puzzled that we do not feed our people and solve our own problems before we look upward.
