John Pike is one of my favorite space/defense experts. Thanks for highlighting this piece, Page.

But I gotta disagree with you. I'd be happy to see a few billion dollars spent to send Delay to his new district on the back side of the moon.

There are a number of reasons that space exploration and research are important.

I'm a big fan of space exploration and research, but unfortunately this administration isn't. Even though they're increasing NASA's budget, their approach is to gut research and scientific projects and spend all the money on grandstanding spectacles like the manned mission to Mars. (Which I suspect, but can't prove, is mainly intended to lay the groundwork to implement Rumsfeld's well-known desire for a military space force.)
