Outer Space....and....who are you...


Recommended Posts

Funding is done from advertising ,i doubt it was done free or if it was there was an expectation of funds coming from its being aired ,or everyone was needy and self obsessed and would do anything to get on tv?

As i say we reward failure hopefully anything gained was returned especially if public taxes or lottery funding was involved

 

If ofcourse every penny was provided by those involved i would have no problem at all

Funding for space exploration comes from advertising in the media? Is that what you are saying?

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

It does seem too much to comprehend, what is out there beyond what us little earthlings can see.   We think we have a bit of understanding about the vast "universe" that surrounds us, but does it go

I have better things to do Ken ,i will leave space for spaceists sitting slack jawed and hand down trousers whenever some unproven opinion of the day pops upWhen a black hole comes up my path and dema

A simple "no" would have sufficed.

Certainly some must be unless its fully funded from the proposer? How on earth would anyone else chip in if the chap in charge didnt go round advertising what he wanted to do? Some magic incantation?

Does space monthly use tarot cards to fill their pages?

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

You are the one that says that people should keep their traps shut unless they are 100% certain of their facts.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

No until they produce something worth while

Perhaps you are confused what advertising is ?

If i spend months advertising i will do x and i fail isnt that fraud? Therefore punishment should be the next step?

If they kept quiet until they did x all would be well

Are you 100% certain of any of this? If you are then prove it to me. If not take some of your own medicine.

As a federal agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) receives its funding from the annual federal budget passed by the United States Congress. [from wiki]

 

Unfortunately, cuts in the funding has led to projects being postponed, cancelled or prematurely killed off at a time when they can still provide important data.

Sources of ESA funding here. Nowhere does it mention any income, via the media from advertising.

I did say you didnt know what advertising is ,how many fund raising meetings were held ,if you mention a subject in the same sentence as funding it thats advertising ,just mentioning on the media is advertising it ,just mentioning it to your peers is advertising ,i think your getting confused with selling shampoo?

If you didnt advertise something no-one would know about it and boy did we hear about it!
