I think in terms of space exploration, we have long been indebted to the Lomonosov long can, and do not want to really explore the cosmos. The money for the space not to be found - they are, switch the money on military budgets and space exploration.
First of all people involved in space are in the process, new technologies and materials for commercial use. Second advantage in space exploration will be all: President - points in the presidential race, NASA - the work, the United States - prestige, humanity will take advantage of new technologies. Losers will be only those that believe that they better spend money on something useful, the earth. They are usually lag behind the U.S. in 10-15 years, will buy new products through third countries and the money will flow back to the U.S.. Investing in space projects is one of the types of advertising and technical production of the country, carrying out these projects. So it is simply good. Plus political dividends. So, of course you spend.
I think that in such areas as space exploration and its necessary to take in all countries. Only together can we succeed. And yet, without Russia, not conquer space no country in the world!
