I love this blog about why the Hubble Telescope is worth the money even in a tough economy. I fear that we will cut science too much and instead invest in celebrities, gossip, bolstering businesses that should naturally fail, and other things that do nothing to advance our species or increase our understanding. Maybe it is geeky, but I think that space exploration is vital. Pushing the boundaries of human knowledge and exploration have always resulted in more innovation that just focusing on survival has.

Agreed

For those who think spending 9.6 billion over 20 years is a lot, I give you a reality check: http://www.wallstats.com/zoom.
