"I would kill the super collider. I would kill the space station." -Bernie Sanders, 1993. In retrospect, were the International Space Station and the SSC Supercollider worthwhile projects?

Bernie, you are sounding too radical to me. Are you imploding like Trump?

What's wrong with the space station? I find what they do fascinating

I agree. But I would question the judgment of someone who couldn't see value in space exploration or particle physics research. I also wonder if Bernie would make the "hindsight is 20/20" defense about the Iraq War.

His views on nuclear energy, GMOs , NASA, and science in general are absolutely horrible. We should stay as the world leader in science and technology but Sanders doesn't want that. The more I learn about him the more I dislike him.

The ISS was of course built despite Sanders' opposition. The proposed SSC project ways successfully scrapped due to opposition after $1 bil had been spent on it.
