The 10 Most Expensive Space Projects/Missions of All Time

10. The Quantum Computer – $ 15 million

Since we are speaking of missions to space, it’s important that we mention the Quantam Computer. Cell phones now have more processing power than the computers on the Apollo 11 mission did. It’s amazing to think about how much potential there is in our future, as computers only keep getting faster and more efficient. NASA started working with Google last year to create the world’s first quantum computer, with a processor about 3,600 times faster than any other computer in existence. What that means is, some huge scientific advances will be possible in the near future with this technology. Once it’s done the cost of the first quantum computer is estimated at $15 million, a small price for a tool that will surely influence our future. Some of the advances made possible by the quantum computer are: the ability to analyze ample amounts of data found by telescopes and discover earth-like planets, detect cancer earlier on and reduce weather-related deaths by precision forecasting.
