There's an article on CNN.com that talks about how the general public still supports the American space program despite the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster. Of course, the article also quotes some people who don't believe we should go to Mars yet until all problems on Earth are fixed (yea, that's gonna happen anytime soon, or EVER), and other people who think the space program is bogus and that the Apollo moon landings were a hoax. Being a big supporter of NASA and space exploration in particular, I'd have to call all these naysayers a bunch of morons.
In another article from CNN.com, there are over 70 sextillion stars in the universe. That's 7 followed by 22 zeros, or 70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 or 70 thousand million million million. ONLY??? THAT'S WEAK!!! So anyways... How 'bout them Angels?
