So I recently came across an interesting point on why NASA isn't a waste of money, and it basically stated how NASA supports thousands of jobs, creates community events, and uses a part of its budget as the salary of some of the smartest people on the planet. But is this a huge impact?
Whenever a large company is created, it creates hundreds maybe even thousands of decent paying jobs. But does this only benefit the people who are working in that company? Or does it benefit the community as a whole (in terms of economic success)?
