And to expain a little about my judging - I think both parties made great attempts at their side of the debate, but HunterKiller2001 kind of missed the target slightly - the argument wasn't against NASA, but why NASA shouldn't return to the moon. Sure money might well be better spent elsewhere than a space programme, but this argument was about the directions in which NASA spends its funding...
Good debate, nonetheless...

Good debate guys, thanks to both of you for taking part. As Falco and Loonboy both said, it's a real shame it had to end early. It was a hard topic though.
HUNTERKILLER2001 I found you needed to stay more on the topic at hand, and of course, needed to finish the debate. However your style of debate was not bad. Relevancy = 4 Countering = 4 Style = 7 Persuasiveness = 4 TOTAL = 19/40
AZTECINCA Good, relevant information, you definately had me persuaded. Countering was lacking a little bit. Relevancy = 8 Countering = 5 Style = 7 Persuasiveness = 9 TOTAL = 29/40
