For example, throughout the 1960s, anywhere from 40% to 60% of Americans felt that we were spending too much money on space exploration. Even after the moon landing, barely half the country felt that the Apollo program was worth the cost. And while many Americans believe that NASA costs almost a quarter of the US budget, the actual cost is less than 0.5% — and it hasn’t risen more than 1% since 1993.
