Abstract
This special topic poll sought respondents' views on the United States space exploration program, specifically the exploration of Mars. Respondents were asked about the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the government budget for the space program, benefits of the space program, the $250 million price tag of the Mars project, and the possibility of sending astronauts to Mars. They were also asked to assess their interest in national politics, science, business, sports, international events, celebrities and entertainment, and local issues, and to assess further their interest in the scientific topics of space exploration, computers, cloning, natural disasters, dinosaurs, the origin of humans, genetic engineering, weapon and military technology, the human brain, medical advances, and scientific methods for solving crimes. Those queried were asked which media sources they consulted for scientific news and whether they believed in the existence of intelligent life in outer space. The results of the poll were announced on the Discovery Channel. Background information on respondents includes age and sex.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR02500.v1
