A Catastrophic blow to Innovation

The space program has not only advanced our understanding of the cosmos beyond our planet but it has given us so much innovation back here at home. Areas such as safety, communication, casual comfort/etertainment, medicine, terrestrial exploration have all benefited from man's exploration of space. Every day items we take for granted can have their origins tracked directly to the space program. I believe A future without space exploration would be a bleak future indeed, one lacking in innovation and most importantly inspiration.
