Was meant to be a reply to @bluedream13, but this works as well
oh yeah okay you got me there, but most of the research and development shit in that area is not producing such real world benefits as gps. Lot's of stuff was developed for space and proven useful in other areas but because it was developed for space it costed way more than it would have if the free market came up with it. Every government project is a rip off so space is a rip off until it becomes free market.
While it is true that government project can be, and often are, more expensive than private counterparts, that doesn't mean there isn't a place for it. Most large, fundamental research projects are better undertaken as government enterprises (space exploration is slightly different as certain hard tasks can result in $$$), as typically the advancements to society made are indirect. For example, the space race drastically accelerated the development of integrated circuits. Sattelites would not have been possible without it either. Also typically developments require a 'known' need, and space presents these, and then people find out that thier 'new development' has useful purposes outside of the application it was directly developed for.
Also I think government projects being ripoffs has more to do with corruption and the (poor) tendering process (which even if carried out fairly often results in adverse outcomes).
lol yeah it's due to corruption, government is corruption and little else, know this now

It's not going to crush you inside a sealed container. Like a real tin can. Just kidding. But you'll be fine in a sealed structure like a submarine or Bioshock-esque building.
It can crush the most largest submarine on the planet, so a tin can is far cry
Bruh people have been down in the Mariana trench. The deepest spot known in the ocean.
Yet many parts of the ocean are fully not discovered. Marianne Trench is the only known deepest part of the ocean. These are more undiscovered parts of the ocean
regardless of whether or not they did, stanley kubrick has some interesting info for you...
well you know the groundbreaking film 2001 a space odyssey was filmed around the same time as the moon landing was released, yeah? Nobody could imitate a moon landing before this director's techniques. I'm not saying the moon landing didn't occur, but the government did have a fake one filmed by him for propaganda purposes so they could still tell the world they won the space race if they failed their mission
That’s actually what I think too, I watched a documentary on netflix about it and it’s very believable that they just filmed it fake
