Hubble telescope danger: or oppertunity to cut useless spen

I see this possability of a cancelation; as a profit!

The project has yet to answer the first question, in fact it has raised the quantity of questions considerabely.

All hubble mitions should be put on perminant hold; untill world poverty is noloner a problem.

Enough! Enough! Science has squandered enough taxpayer $$ on their very expensive toy!

Squandering money? (1)

We have learned quite a bit from the Hubble space telescope. It has aided our understanding of the past of the universe as well as compositions of other extant galaxies and solar systems.

If you want to talk about squandering money you should be talking about things like the war that the previous POTUS started without provocation.

And by the way, most current browsers come with spell check. I would highly recommend it.

Tell me one thing of value, to humanity; that the Hubble telescope has accomplished.

The only facts; I am aware of: Science has not proved that there is no creator. Religion has been unable to prove there is a creator. And there are honest people; whom admit they do not know.

If it is proven There is an higher inteligence in the universe, Cause of all things and happenings in The Cosmos; that would make the total of all scientific theories; erronioue SPAM; Just another bunch of huan errors; to add to the mountain of such errors already in existance.

Your remark about my dyslexia; Well your only human; so you do not realize it has no place in logical reasoning!

It changed our understanding of how galaxies are formed in the universe with regards to their positions in space. It has shown that galaxies in space are accelerating over time, and that indeed objects can move at speeds greater than the speed of light.

Those are all valuable things to humanity.

Your remark about my dyslexia

You could choose to install a browser that will flag your spelling errors. I was not passing a judgement against you for the errors in your typing; rather the fact that you are not utilizing freely available technology to help with the misspelled words.

To this day; how has the Hubble been prophetable to humanity! Can it do anything to stop wars, political corruption; ans the like?

Coments about spellling; have no point in reasoning, it does not appear you did not comprehend what I said

I've already mentioned a short summary of some of what we've learned from Hubble.

Can it do anything to stop wars, political corruption; ans the like?

So then would you want the government to discontinue funding on life sciences research by that logic? And have you ignored the technology that is in everyday life that stemmed from NASA research already?

Coments about spellling; have no point in reasoning

Settle down, I'm not trying to use your terrible spelling against you. However the fact that you choose to not use a spell checker before you post does not help your presentation. People who can spell will see your poorly spelled statements and expect them to be framing a poorly constructed argument. If you want to be taken seriously in discussion you should do yourself a favor and at least start using a spell checker.

For crying out loud I even have a spell checker on my blackberry.
