What a society spends its resources on should reflect the priorities of that society. The U.S. would rather spend money on bailing out rich people and bombing poor people than going to the moon.
A White House panel of independent space experts says NASA's return-to-the-moon plan just won't fly.

The problem is money. The expert panel estimates it would cost about $3 billion a year beyond NASA's current $18 billion annual budget.
What does that say about the nation?
