Benefitted

Secretsquirrel
After all the money spent on the 'space programs and probes', how many people on QnA can say that their lives were benefitted in any appreciable way? The last I checked, the US has spent over 1 trillion dollars since 1957 in their space explorations. Does anyone think that this God-awful amount of money has actually brought any measurable reward to the lives of the vast majority of the people on this planet or has it just increased our knowledge about the universe and its' workings. Is a person that has no chance of even a basic education going to see any benefit from this expenditure, or is their life going along like it has for the past 3,000 years? How do we justify starving children, homeless and helpless people all over the planet, malaria still killing over a million people a year, and other social ills that this planet suffers when we fritter away our money on riding in space?
