    There should be no tax payer dollars spent on this distant star stuff. The same goes for us paying for scientists to go to the North & South poles to do stupid experiments on how long it takes to freeze water or what ever they do. My point is our Gov. shouldn’t be allowed to blow money we don’t have. There is no common sense at all in Washington, the same goes for the Capitol in all of our states.
