Why do "we" need to spend $$$$ to send people to outer space?
Oh that's easy. Militarizing space is a priority. That is ultimately what everyone is all after. It comes from the basic military standard that if you are ambushing from a RAISED level(above your enemy), then you have a clear advantage over them.

I think priorities are out of whack in this area.

I agree with what Tonys reply was. But enough is enough with our tax dollars. We have more important things to spend on right now. Like how about Health care that most americans don't have. And don't even get me started on Medicare.
