NASA, Mars and crowdfunding

You probably already saw the topic about the Curiosity apparatus. If you are sincerely interested in such projects and would like to put a dollar in your hand , you may soon have a similar opportunity.

All technical operations related to the Curiosity project cost each US taxpayer $ 7. This is 1% of the total budget that the States allocate for the defense industry.

The hashtag #fundNASA is slowly gaining momentum on Twitter, users are already expressing a desire to help the project.

So far, all this exists only at the idea level, but if you think about it, NASA is the perfect candidate for Kickstarter.


What do you think, if we leave aside all organizational issues, the special status of NASA as an organization and other bureaucracy - does the project have a chance?
