MSNBC’s Cosmic Log breaks down the bailout in terms of the Apollo program: Even accounting for inflation since the program ended in the early 70’s, this bailout could pay for seven Apollo programs.
Seven Apollo programs. Not just sending one set of guys to the moon, but the ENTIRE program. SEVEN TIMES. And that’s before you take the extra $110 billion they tacked on to get the damn thing passed.
That is a lot of goddamn money.
