You must be joking, right?
Our complete Time Management depends on the knowlege from Astrophysics.
sure, but i think jimimaseye rather wanted to query from another perspective, such as Mars, Jupiter, asteroids... missions. don't tell me mankind eventually will travel there. mankind eventually will die too. the question is : which is more human TODAY and in reasonable future? starving millions or exciting space adventures with a fractal of their cost millions could be saved from starving.
gentlemen (mods) i'd suggest to split this topic. eh?
We can discuss even Beer in this section, so it's up to us.
Science provides insides about the Nature and it's secrets.
This is an everlasting process and never stops. Science also needs other science to provide even better results.
For example Vital Monitors in Hospital or complex Simulations of chemicals in Drugs to reduce or entirely avoid Animal drug testing,
or determine the Weather (which relies on Satelites ect). Even our everyday payments cannot happen without Computer science findings and
the Hardware which is a result of it.
Simply: You cannot built something if you don't know how.To know how, you need to research and research is the core of science.
Also the costs for Science and Education is a tiny fraction compared to military spending. My Country now will pay 40 Billion Euros per year,
while Russia spends 60 Billion $ and USA is spending 760 Billions per Year.
The European Space Agency has a Budget of 5 Billion Euros.
Germany had a overall tax income of 650 Billion and our National Household budget was 322 Billions(which includes Universal Healthcare for all,
pay for the unemployed and elderly People, Education and Science).
I love to see more Science spending in general, from Agriculture, Med and Physics/Astrophysics, Robotics and AI because that is what we need in the
future and in many cases already nowdays.
