Praise for a Simple [Space] Experiment

First, watch this video:

Simply Awesome!! Well, at least I thought it was!
Such experiments conducted in a zero-gravity environment – whether that environment is artificially created on Earth or is genuine in outer space and, no matter how “silly” or a “waste of time or tax-payer money” naysayers think such experiment may be, are uniquely educational and instrumental to technical scientists, medical scientists and engineers. Such experiments help scientists and engineers learn how to develop new or better technologies, medicines, and cures for mankind; at the very least, such experiments help those scientists and engineers improve upon the tech and medicines we already have. Much of the tech, medicines, and cures we now have would not have been possible had there been no space travel and no space experiments to begin with. Think about it!

Sometimes the simplest of things, many of which we take for granted, have to be performed in completely nonideal or unorthodox environments or situations in order to get certain results and/or to teach us different, if not better ways to approach or find viable solutions to particular problems.

I may not have as high of an IQ as scientists and engineers, nor may not understand much of anything math-related beyond basic math (I still find algebra difficult to do and pointless for my daily living) but I’m smart and wise enough to realize, understand, and appreciate space missions and space experiments, and to support the work done by astronauts from Earth – regardless of their country of origin/nationality; that is, so long as their work is for the specifically peaceful and useful benefit of all mankind and other lifeforms which exist here on Earth.
