    What is missing from this discussion is that the majority of NASA funding is going to something that has gives no value to science, society or the participants: i.e. manned space travel. There is nothing that can be done by manned space travel that can’t be done at a tiny fraction of the cost by robotics. Actual scientific investigations, not to mention robust protection against catastrophic impacts, are being sacrificed for showmanship. “Settlement” appeals only to people who enjoy life in a maximum security prison.
