A friend asked me about the NASA budget and the money our nation and other nations spend on exploring and studying space. Space missions aren’t just for kicks, they aren’t just for probing our neighboring planets or for contacting little green men, they’re done in efforts to enhance life, and to help us one day escape inevitable extinction event(s) awaiting Earth. Few exposit the fundamentals of the sciences, space exploration and skepticism like renowned science popularizer and astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, so I’ve posted videos of his views on the NASA budget below.

Note: In 2013, scientists predicted that Earth will continue to be habitable 1.75 to 3.25 billion years. Yet global warming could lead to disastrous climate change by 2100.
