Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    $/(10,000$ of GDP) threw me off for a moment. That’s the first time I’ve seen it expressed that way. Doing the math, they’re claiming that US space is 0.0012% of GDP, which is in line with what I remember from other sources.

    what constitutes a space program? how many actually launch any rockets of the own? and of the majority of these, exactly what are they doing with their money? are they paying some else’s program to do some thing for them (say lake the US is paying Russia to send astronauts up?
