    My favorite comment from the post-landing press conference was that this cost every American $7 - far cheaper than a movie - and that this movie would be running for a long time. The analogy demonstrates the incredible value of the mission and the beneficial power of taxation. Where it breaks down is that this mission brings far more than entertainment value. It could shed light on one of the most important questions we face as a species: are we alone in the universe?
