  1. For 2013, in billions of dollars, the NASA budget was 17.7 while the total federal budget was 3,685.

    17.7/3,685 = 0.0048 = 0.48% (I rounded to 0.5%).

  2. This is boring and it has some funky music. We should go to the Bohemian Grove next year to see some aliens. Um take Salvador Wanker Rodriguez and my brother. Im scared.

  3. NASA gets almost no budget and they still come up with the best gadgets! Even if you double their budget it still will be too small an amount but they'd create even better things so we can start exploring even further.

  4. I'm not going to argue the design issues with the shuttle, but you need to research your facts. The XB-70 was Mach 3, not 6, and the nukes it was going to carry were tiny compared to an X-15, which could not be strapped on the outside like a B-52 (or WhiteKnight 2 for that matter). The X-15 could barely do a ballistic arc to the edge of space, because, while Mach 6+ fast, it simply didn't have near the fuel to orbit, which is not something you could cure with "modern materials."
