If you've been paying attention to science, our knowledge of the world around us has been growing almost exponentially!. We keep learning new stuff, and we do that by conducting experiments and observations!. And those!.!.!.cost money!.

I could think of a lot of worse ways to spend money than using it to try to figure out the universe's deepest secrets!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
