We Need To Make Our Government Spend Our Tax Money More Wisely

Charles W. Jones, International President Emeritus

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) had it pretty rough last fall. In September they lost the Mars Climate Orbiter, a satellite that was supposed to study the atmosphere of Mars. Then in December, they lost its mate, the Mars Polar Lander, which was supposed to land near the south pole of Mars and study the polar surface.

NASA's goal for these shots was to determine whether there has ever been enough water on the surface of Mars to support life. Together, these failed launches cost a total of $356.5 million.
