5 reasons NASA is da best. Thanks to Bill and Melinda Gates for their support on this video. Check out the 2018 annual letter here:
My five reasons:
1) Makes Earth a better place
2) Extinction prevention
3) Offshoot technology
4) Economy
5) Exploration and Imagination

Summary: 1 in 4 Americans thinks NASA's budget should be reduced. I feel this stems from misunderstandings like how much NASA actually gets in the first place. I tried to shed some light on some of the work NASA does from my personal experience to make a case for why NASA is one of the best investments we make with our tax dollars.

By popular demand I have shirts now! I picked the super soft, high quality shirts and make $0 on all items which is why they are priced so handsomely :)

I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

This is the most concrete proof that I have to prove to the people who always tell me that NASA is an agency greedy for taxpayer's money that they are wrong.

But we have a PRESIDENT Named Trump aka The Most Corrupted President in History who does NOT care about our Planet, our Wildlife, our OCEANS, Rivers and Lakes, our Environment, our SSI, Medicate, our Medicare , our NASA.

For your information: NASA receives only $21,500,000,000 (or $21.5b) each year as a budget. To put that into perspective, Walmart alone is worth $180,000,000,000 (or $180b).

Mark, it's also the Fallacy of Relative Privation, the assertion that your own personal priorities should be the World priorities. There's plenty of money to do both of these things, so it's also a False Dichotomy. I worked on NI-SAR, the project shown in the background in the segment when you were speaking with Narenda. I also worked on Europa Clipper, M2020 Perserverance, & an optics project called MMT.

Nugwugget Ditë më parë
That's really not how it works. Firstly, an elevator to Mars would be far slower than any rocket ship we could create. Secondly, Mars and Earth orbit the sun at different rates, so within a few months the elevator would go through the sun and be destroyed. Yes, an elevator from Earth to Mars is a fun concept, but it's really more fun to just imagine a spaceship.

Well, we don't have any problem with homelessness budgeting. The government just has to make sure that we are giving that money to those who are in need of agencies who hire people to do this, and when they mess up, they hire more people to clean up after them, and then they hire more professionals to fix it. In the end there is no money to actually spend on people in need.

When i was young and spent the night at a friend's house, I had endless nightmares about an asteroid colliding with earth and killing us at any given moment. It's kinda weird because I spent the night with many friends, but couldn't sleep because of the asteroids. I stayed up thinking about it for hours. I was 10 or so at the time, and now I have a STEM degree. Thank you so much for your informative videos.
