If we can afford to spend billions on space travel, we can afford to feed and cloth the poor and destitute.

Yes.

We have reaped many benefits from our space program. As with all scientific "exploration" we never know how the knowledge gained will help us until we gain it.

Yes! It is imperative to our survival as a species.

The sun will die in a bout 4.5 billion yrs. This is about how old the Earth is now.

However, there is a very good chance we will cause our own extinction long before this.

The Hubble Telescope has been a wondrous boon to Astronomy.
