Post Congratulations NASA!   Posted on: Thu Jan 08, 2004 9:26 pm
As a frequent critic of NASA, I want to congratulate NASA for its successfull Mars landing of its Spirit spacecraft. I wonder how many Alan Shepard prayers were prayed? :D

May the benefits be worth of the cost of US and European Mars expeditions as noted:
US - Spirit and Opportunity: 820 million USD
Europe - Beagle2 and Express: 286 million USD

By comparison what are the benefits versus cost of the 10 million USD XPRIZE which is not funded by any taxpayer?
