Then why would you go on the flight, if it wasn't

You don't engage in any activities unless they are
necessary? What a sad life you must lead!

You need to answer the question given to you.

I would go because I want to go.

You shouldn't want to go on the flight. You have already
stated that such flights are unnecessary. Wanting to go on
the flight is not sufficient reason.

Maybe not for you. For me, it's everything.


For you, an opponent of manned space flight, it's an
insufficient reason. For those in favor of manned space flight
for that reason and other reasons, it is sufficient reason.


So you believe that you can define the opinions and values of
people other than yourself? You're sounding nearly as crazy as
the dead guy whose handle you took over.

But you're named Chris, and are therefore profoundly stupid (as
all Chris's are), and cannot possibly be right.

The side benefits from the space program, both manned and unmanned,
far, far exceed the costs. Entire industries exist because of it,
including a great deal of life-saving medical technology that would
never have happened without _manned_ space flight.

You will, of course, deny this (being named Chris, and therefore
profoundly stupid), thus proving I'm right.

In order for anyone to describe your values, peterson, you would
have to have some values. So far, you look like a hypocrite.

He's too stupid to be a hypocrite. Can't can't conflict with his
stated values if he can't *remember* them. What spews out of his
keyboard is essentially random. Chris's are like that. Stupid.

Isn't it terribly inefficient to, instead of working towards some
highly desirable goal, work on some other completely different goal
and then hope for positive side effects?

Mankind should go into space if going into space produces good
effects, not just because the side effects are useful.

War is another human activity which produces useful side effects. For
instance WWII caused technology to evolve considerably. Should we
therefore go to war with one another on a large scale just because of
the technological benefits?

The US bought Alaska from Russia without having any particular plan for what to do with it. The same might be even be said for the purchase of Louisiana from France.

The US developed ARPAnet without envisioning what it would lead to.

Early computer companies never envisioned the PC and the related consumer and business tech.

The Interstate highway system led to an improved standard of living everywhere in the US, but that was not its purpose.

Going into space led very quickly to improved communication capabilities and weather forecasting. The Apollo program led to major improvements without which the US would have a space program about as dull as Sweden's.

All of that, and so much more. Aside from the lives saved by the
medical advances, the direct financial value of the industries
created is at least an order of magnitude more than the cost of the
space program, if not two.

NASA has a magazine about it:

The value of basic research is beyond question. People who oppose
it really want to hunt their dinner with a sharp stick. They should
be forced to do so.

Maybe he has eaten meat from some of the "zombie deer" in his state. It's a good working hypothesis.
