It would help a few people, that's for sure.

that said im fully in support of space exploration as there have been many breakthroughs ,inventions etc that have come around as a result.
I'd rather see 2.5 Billion spent on research than on wars etc.

Rubbish!!! 2.5 billion wouldn't even be enough to fund the committee that was trying to work out what needed solving.

Really amazing that it landed well considering it was dropped from a hovering rocket. Well done NASA.

True Resistance is Futile since we've managed to crash 70% of Mars landers.
Curiosity may have made a large burn since it's nuclear powered.

NASA rover Curiosity shoots a Mars rock with laser

Quote:
"Yes, I've got a laser beam attached to my head. I'm not ill-tempered; I zapped a rock for science." Then it signed off "#PewPew," a nerd reference to the sound lasers make when discharged.

NASA also released a report describing the laser test. The rock was "fist-sized," and was designated "Coronation." It was, says NASA, "the first rock on any extraterrestrial planet to be investigated with such a laser test."

"Each pulse delivered more than a million watts of power for about five one-billionths of a second," the report continues. "The energy from the laser excited atoms in the rock into an ionized, glowing plasma."
