NASA provides nada

NASA. It stands for: “Not An- other Single Answer.” We have spent millions upon millions of tax dollars to send a “rover” to a planet that has nothing to offer mankind, and that they will some day find out.

Look at all the very highly paid NASA people cheering. That mission will certainly ensure their jobs and give them all a raise in pay. That is what they are cheering about.

The deficit would certainly tumble when the atheists quit blowing all the tax dollars on the dreams they see on the science fiction shows that make them believe there is life on some other planet. Or, at least they believe we can live there.

We have already ruined this planet, so let’s leave Mars and all the others in the solar system alone before we ruin them also. If we haven’t learned how to live in peace here, we have no hope anywhere else.

Oh, and one other important point, God gave us this planet to live on, and we have failed Him and ourselves. He did not give us any other planet for that purpose. Psalms 19:1 tells us why the heavens (planets and everything else) are there.

Time, energy, resources and money spent on a fool’s folly. What a waste.

Rea Buttermore, Boardman

Rea....NASA put the satellite in space that you used to post that stupid letter you wrote on your computer. it's called technology.

Rea-wish it was that simple. You may not know what our space program has done for you. Since you have a computer, use it to research this issue. Also,laying off all the science brains at once will have a long-term effect we can't quickly recover from. I don't want the Chinese getting ahead of us in any more areas than they are already. The weather report you may look for is only available because numerous satellites are orbiting our earth. Maybe you think it is not worth it-you can have your opinion certainly. If man had your attitude, we would all be in Europe looking West saying "wonder what is out there? Ever hear of GPS? On-Star? Oh I guess you could take all the $ ever spent on space and feed mankind for about 1 week-then what? Either you believe in it or you don't- kind of like politics in the Mahoning Valley. Nobody changes their way of thinking.....

How would you know what Mars has to offer us if we didn't explore it? You have no idea what is there.

Your ignorance is astounding.

@cambridge, @jeepers, @DwightK: I had a very long reply drafted in response to this letter, but your replies said what I wanted to, in a lot fewer words. Thanks.

Recently discovered in a box dated 1492 in the Madrid Archives was a letter written to Christopher Columbus from a leaf on Ms Buttermore's family tree: "Dear Senor Coumbus, Please don't go! We all know Earth is flat -- you and your men will fall off!"

The ignorance of some who write letters to the editor of this paper is astounding, and very sad. Too bad Rea will never read these comments because she has obviously never touched a computer and has to be a newspaper subscriber.

This might the most off the wall letters I have ever read.

I believe the problem with NASA is that it isn't given enough funds to really develop a clear vision and mission for the future.

Personally I believe creating a moon base is a great idea. It is a mission that is doable but also tests the boundary of technology. The original moon landings certainly pushed forward technology.

Overall money well spent in my opinion. The benefits of pushing the limits of technology and science is clear.
