Human exploration- without it you wouldn't be commenting on a computer screen. (and yes I realize you didn't include robotic's in space- but for true understanding of an environment you eventually need a human presence.) BTW check out some of the research being conducted on the ISS- not a waste at all.

Didn't Obama cut a significant amount of funding to NASA? Granted NASA should have been managed better fiscally and had a better vision of their future especially with regards to a failing space shuttle program. But not sure how NASA could have handled the Space Station better, but perhaps with a fully staffed and supported space program problems like these may not have occurred; however it is an international space station with other countries involved too.
