So I was looking online and found this website. At the end, the author states that NASA has the largest budget of any space program in the world. This is a completely meaningless statement since there are only four countries with launch capabilities (America, China, Europe (yes, I realize this is not a country), Russia), and of those four, only one has ever landed a man on the moon. Also, if you look at NASA’s budget as a percent of the total budget (2012 numbers), we find that NASA took up .5% of the annual budget. Half a percent.
