NASA uses less than 0.5% of the US budget and should be increased, for what they have already established, various spacecrafts to make life on earth easier, for context SMAP (Soil Moisture, Active, Passive) has promoted the world by detecting the condition of the soil and updating that data every two days for free and the have only spent 900 million on it, 900 million might sound like a lot, but instead of giving out food only once and not even enough to feed every one, SMAP helps everyone feed themselves for decades to come and have saved people from all of the world from the fate of starvation, yet they have spent less than 0.5% of the American budget and benefits the entire world.

Along with this, they collect data to see what it would be like to inhabit Mars, just in case something really catastrophically bad happens and makes near impossible to survive on earth, additionally that it helps us to solve problems back at earth such as to help predict the paths of hurricanes more accurately and reliably.

A counter argument you might say is that why does it have to be NASA? Why can’t we do space X or blue origin, the reason backing this  fact is that we don’t completely know what their intentions are, they could be seeking payments for all the investments, what they have created is not for the rest of the economy for free, but with NASA we know  precisely what their intentions are and so we can trust them to allocate the extra money wisely and get something back in return.
