What if NASA had the US Military's Budget?

165598 ratings | 5141691 views
In this video we do a little speculating! What could NASA do with the US military's massive 600 billion dollar annual budget? EDIT: Made a little mistake at 0:29...I pressed the greater than sign when it should be less than. My apologies! Edit 2: I have also realized that I took NASA's budget percentage from the TOTAL United States annual budget, not the DISCRETIONARY budget like I used for the military. It's still a very small percentage, but I apologize nonetheless. Please remember to SUBSCRIBE! Second Thought is a channel devoted to the things in life worth considering. New videos every week!

Honestly loved this video showing off the potentials. I hated the army and the absolute insanity behind the funds they get, but this video got me so pissed off at them. Honestly anyone in charge of military or their finance deserves uncurable cancer for being prestigious elite dickheads. Perhaps they’d invest in some proper research then. Conservatives not only endangering EVERY SINGLE LIVING THING om this planet, nah they also fuck every single living things current and future lives up by rather showing off some amateur tech in jets and tanks, whilst they could potentially harvest a stars energy if they only spent their budget on research and technology. Cant rant enough about the stupidity of leaders and rulers. The moment we needed an army was the moment our species was doomed.

When I was a kid in the 90's I had big hopes for the future space program and was very excited to see what we will have in 2020. I have never been so disappointed, sure we have some other cool shit but I no longer feel I been born during the right time, 50 years too soon I think. Probably won't have anything cool in space for a long time with the way things are going. Thanks to Elon some interest and excitement have been restored but it's not enough, we need another space race.

Somewhere in the future kids are gonna be like “why are we still living in this shitty planet when we could build ships to travel to other places” and ima be like “well we rather spend our money making stuff to kill ourselves with ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ “

We spend so much of our money fighting each other when we could be making a better life for every man and women etc. Yet we would rather spend more money fighting each other

What if nasa had the 1.3 trillion welfare budget
Thomas Brown (5 days ago)
I would say add maybe 100-250billion onto nasa payment to speed things up. They have given up on the moon even though there is still more to explore. What about Mars their *might* be aliens or other livening organisms

So we can't evolve into a species and take the next step, all because the US military needs a lot of toys.

What NASA can do with military budget: buy more green screens to fake their stuff (no offense lmao but plz spacex can do better with that money)
Jacquie Michelle (6 days ago)
Just think about, y’all know the story of colonisation of America so before the exploration of new continent European countries had no interest until a major event totched them and Portugal was the first to start exploration due to their localisation but also because they had no conflict with others country .so I think we just need one nation to make the first step to creat a world mouvement and I just hope we are born in the bm start of space colonization.

I love how ignorant this is, the reason the US needs to pool all of its power into military is to manage the current problems with other countries we are dealing with! You wanna know what happens when you swap the military budget with nasa? Try dropping the soap in the shower of Alcatraz to get a good idea
Weird Guy (8 days ago)
Well if you mine asteroids maybe NASA can have much more money and the military can have NASAs money (I don't know much about asteroid mineing.)
Phoenix Nebula (8 days ago)
I find it funny how the US is constantly racking up debate so they don't invest in space, but when the military wants more money the government just gives it to them. I find it even funnier that if we all played 10% income tax we would be able to pay for two US budgets. Seriously if we all played 10% income tax we could have both a massive space program and a massive military.
The Legend Mobile (8 days ago)
We rather invest money on military equipment for war, and destroy the only earth we got instead of investing it on nasa to explore space.
Well I’m safe

They are both government agencies. If they had a bigger budget they would overpay for everything to preserve their budget for the next fiscal year.

Ruben Immanuel (11 days ago)
i think the US already do the right thing . what the point of exploring something we didn't know if there is a greater threat here on earth the humans itself cuz we can't work together. so the right thing to do is rule the world by investing in military and make the world have the same ideology so we didn't need to pay for military again then we could give tha NASA the budget they needed. i know rule the world its a little bit silly but if there is no leader chaos will happen again and if you want to rule the world you need power that is why the US do the right thing this is just the beginning when all the nation on earth became 1 then we can invest more in NASA just be passion it will happen i hope.

The government should set up a conservating system for the army in Case of war or emergency, that way the troops Will only be used in need. They would have 1-2 years of set-up and cut the budget in half

Why unite our forces with all the nations on this planet, and finally be ALL HUMANS, to invest into an unlimited future together? Let's just make war machines and try killing each others in world wars or in small wars for some stupid land. Who cares about the future of humans? We HAVE TO have a strong army lol. *humor for those who are going to judge*
