    So what?

    They should last a long time, as much as we're spending. And what are we gaining from this?

    Well, you could always head to Africa or South America or one of the tiny European countries. They usually have nearly no tax money invested in space programs. Au revoir!

    lol.

    We're gaining some of the most valuable information about another planet in our solar system. We're gaining experience that will help us in future missions. The entire program cost $247 million dollars - about ten cents per person per year that it was in operation.

    The program was meant to go two years, it goes ten and we still complain. Heh.

    I read that a few weeks ago. Easily one of their best ones in the past few months.

    And remember, naysayers...there are some in the scientific community that think we need to get to work colonizing & terraforming Mars ASAP b/c of global warming, overpopulation, etc. They may be right. Even if they're not (who can predict the future?) we need to develop Mars, if only because that's where we build starships (like the Enterprise D and E) in the future. (No, Star Trek isn't a religion...honest....)

    Maybe.

    But I'm sure that they'll redo the Mars thing next week in the studio. :p  *Sarcasm*

    Yeah, let's just sit on this stupid worthless planet for the remainder of time. Who cares what's out there, let's just close ourselves off to the universe for the sake of money.

    Earth is the cradle of humanity. No species spends it's entire life in the cradle.

    This is one of the few programs that is truly worth the investment.
