Why be buried or cremated (just throw us on the compost pile)?
The impact of government spending on society is complex.So, $2.5 Billion dollars was spent on the Curiosity Rover. That money in turn paid hundreds, or thousands of people's wages, research grants, and etc.These people then pay taxes, employ others, help with education, buy stuff such as food (which pays farmers) and etc.And, when you divide $2.5 Billion by the 300 Million people in the USA, one gets less than $10 per person. Everything still adds up, but perhaps real discovery on Mars is worth the price of a movie ticket.
