Nice, 8-minute video by a former JPL Engineer that answers, in simple language, if spending money on NASA is a waste.

This is a good response to those who think that, A) NASA gets about 20% of the U.S. Federal Government's budget and B) we shouldn't spend money in space when there are so many problems here on Earth.
