    5 reasons NASA is da best. Thanks to Bill and Melinda Gates for their support on this video. Check out the 2018 annual letter here:
    My five reasons:
    1) Makes Earth a better place
    2) Extinction prevention
    3) Offshoot technology
    4) Economy
    5) Exploration and Imagination

    Summary: 1 in 4 Americans thinks NASA's budget should be reduced. I feel this stems from misunderstandings like how much NASA actually gets in the first place. I tried to shed some light on some of the work NASA does from my personal experience to make a case for why NASA is one of the best investments we make with our tax dollars.

    By popular demand I have shirts now! I picked the super soft, high quality shirts and make $0 on all items which is why they are priced so handsomely :)

    I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

      What would you prefer, to live here and risk a rock or a life ending event. Or find somewhere else and keep the human race going? Never put all your eggs in the same planet.

      1. Old KSI Videos

        Well said

    21. Isaac Hodges

      I wrote a 14 page paper trying to capture why space missions and exploration was important about 4 years ago when I was in high school and it just made me so happy to see you sum up all of my main points so well! Keep up the great work on inspiring videos!!!!

    43. Loturzel Restaurant

      Last 'Point' should have been elaborated on more.

    44. Novice9241

      As a non-american I never knew NASA’s budget, nor did I know how big it is compared to other budgets. This makes the budget sound relatively small. That being said, I’ve already red small articles of plans to terraform Mars. Can’t remember exactly what was said about, only how long it could take. And if I remember correctly, longer than any current person’s lifespan. Even so, the mere possibility of such a thing is exciting.

        You need to know about math science and physics, dont let that not count to your study!

        Pay your taxes

    59. One Click

      this has made me want people to spend a little bit more money on NASA

      True American. 😅

    62. Emil Melich

      04:06 yes.

    63. Noel Marcias

      no, NASA can get us unlimited resources from space (oNe dAy) (My opinion)

      1. Apple TV

        There are no unlimited resourcess, infinite doesnt even exist

    64. Saransh Agrawal

      This was literally topic of my debate in class and I spoke in favor of space agencies(like all of them)

    69. sdf elite

      why government do involuntary charity ?

      1. Sandro Dugladze

        Because nasa benifits them with better tehnology and helps the economy

    70. Zapper

      I’m nearly 100% sure that burning money is illegal maybe not for most places but In the USA

    71. Canadian Longboarder

      Liked your video until you mentioned that you teamed up with Bill Gates.

      1. Autistic Burrito

        what do you have against Bill?

      My answer before watching is no.

    78. Domen Žigart

      Uhh... how did you cut a penny in half without bending him.

    79. Alexander Ellis-Robbins

      "The first person to land on Mars is alive right now... They could be at high school, they could be at college, it could be you...." *Me with half a fajita hanging out of my mouth* :O

      1. Alexander Ellis-Robbins

        @Science Sara Yes! My current phone is getting a bit old.. Maybe it is time I sent it into space to become my own personal satellite. Would just need to attach a solar cell 😮

      2. Science Sara

        @Alexander Ellis-Robbins I love the idea :P I want to try get one of those mega weather balloons and send something into low orbit with a go pro, I think it would be awesome!

      3. Alexander Ellis-Robbins

        @Science Sara Okay here is my plan.. I spend the next 70 years building an absolutely giant rockoon... It will use a balloon so large it could carry the new giant NASA rockets.... and if I manage to turn 100 years old I will blast myself to Mars such that if I die it wont matter as I will be so old anyway. Chances are though... someone would get there before me :'( Truth is I just wanna make a home made rockoon and send something into space.

      4. Science Sara

        Hahaha it could be! Fajita and all :)

      The fact that such a high percentage of Americans don't know what their taxes are spent on really concerns me, and explains a lot about how the elections tit-for-tat.

      This is why I'm a mechanical engineering student, so inspiring.

      Why not five pennies? A penny for each reason.

      I appreciate the vid and i think it makes so much sense, but seriously, how DID you cut that penny in half??

    99. R. O.

      If anything, the budget should be 10x what it is now.
