My opinion? Space "exploration" is a huge waste of money.        

What has been gained? And what's been gained in the last 20~30 Years? It just seems like a lot of money is pushed that direction (granted, we're talking pennies to dollars compared to military spending) without a whole lot of return on investment. But at the heart of it this is a serious question, I really don't know if there HAVE been some gains that couldn't have been made without traveling outside the planets gravity.

As for your direct questions, I know I have had benefit from very Old NASA tech (everyone has), but I doubt anything within the last few decades. Absolutely not aware of any benefits from funding yahoos like yourself. Future exploration funding ought to be 100% private. Give me a reason to put money into the program and maybe I will, REQUIRE me to do so and I'll hate you forever.

I'm more interested in what's going on at the bottom of the ocean than what's happening out past Pluto.
