you are expecting a book report from someone who cannot read
i clearly mentioned at the top of this page that NASAs annual budget is 0.5% of the national budget
these people see a large number like $2.5b and think it represents an incredible percentage of the USA annual spending just because $2.5b is a lot to an individual
Canada, Russia, Spain and France all contributed to the rover project with technology and labor. This creates jobs in all of these countries, attracts the most brilliant minds, and paves the way to new technological innovations whose practical use often benefits other private business groups.
The alternative is the united states cuts NASAs budget and the US loses thousands of jobs to China, suffers further brain drain and falls behind in the development of new industries and technology
critical thinking is hard
