Is Space Exploration good for the Economy?

Neil deGrasse Tyson thinks so and  I tend to agree.  At very least space exploration is certainly a  more peaceful and interesting way to spend money rather than on the military.

    You know this reminds me that there are some things that just wouldn’t be done without collective action – no matter what Ayn Rand says. Maybe at some point the profit motive would have gotten us to the moon (at least to give joy rides to multi-millionaires or to mine) but exploration for exploration’s sake, I don’t know.

      You are probably right, Jon. Not unless a bunch of million/billionaires got together and formed a foundation dedicated to space exploration. In either case – I would be pretty happy seeing my money go to the cause of space exploration or just science in general.
