Now I'd like to ask you about government spending on NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). In answering, please bear in mind that sooner or later all government spending has to be taken out of the taxes that you and other Americans pay. Do you think spending on the US (United States) space program should be increased, kept at the present level, reduced, or ended altogether? (Source: Gallup Poll, Jul, 2009)
