If +NASA did a Kickstarter for their next major Space Exploration project would you fund it?

+Tom Merritt +Leo Laporte +Robert Scoble some fellow space enthusiasts…

+Mars Rover Opportunity – We could possibly fund a friend…

What would you expect out of a community funded project?
Would you even fund such a project?

    So for a $500 contribution you'd get a bit of red Martian dust in a Ziploc bag?

    Yes!  Hell, I wish they'd collect all my taxes that way…  On April 15th you calculate your taxes, and on the 16th you can start doling it out.

    That is a he'll of an idea let us say what we want to find with our tax payment…. Man that would shut up a ton of people….

    Of course we'd have the same problem we have now… misinformation would prevent people from making the right decisions. Do think the defense industry would be in for a rude awakening…

    So would all the politicians…. And sadly many are not intelligent enough to make good choices….

    NASA can't do a Kickstarter due to fundraising laws on government organizations. However, we can:

    Nasa is always contributing, with the  new discovers of the sideral space , for the spreading and enlargement  of the human knowledge . Being a very serious company , it deserves our attention and symbolic financial aid .
