Re: waste of money

Space inspires many of the scientists and engineers who go on to work in medical and other pure and practical research.

It's worth it for that alone, even if you ignore all the medical and other innovations directly coming from space science and engineering.

And all that aside, space funding is a rounding error when compared to military spending, which has helped with trauma medicine but not much else.
