What is the Sandbox?

This "Sandbox" is a place where Politics users can get feedback on prospective questions they wish to post to the main page. This is useful because writing a clear and fully specified question on your first try can be difficult, and there is a much better chance of your question being well received if you post it in the Sandbox first.

To post to the Sandbox, scroll to the bottom of this page and click "Answer This Question", or click on the "Add Proposal" link below. Click "OK" when it asks if you really want to add another answer. Write your question exactly as you would when actually posting it. You may also add some notes about specific things you would like to clarify before posting it. Other users will help you improve your proposed question by rating and discussing it. When you think your question is ready for the public, go ahead and post it, and replace the post here with a link to the question on the main site and delete the Sandbox post.

To add an inline tag to a proposal use shortcut link syntax with a prefix: [tag:united-states]

The Sandbox works best if you sort posts by "active".

Coming back to the topic of federal funding, after poking fun at the billionaires club, I am also aware that there is a general trend of reduction in NASA funding after the peak of the "space race" during cold war as well a trend for tax breaks for Big 3 during the peak of the "Billionairre space race" and trend begun by
