NASA is a huge benefit to society. Not just to the United States, but to the greater Earth as a whole. The pure research and bold exploration of the Solar System and larger universe has created a number of "spin-off" technologies and innovations that continue to benefit all of us.
Curious as to the numbers on this "techno-trickle"? It just so happens that NASA tracks the metrics on much of this interaction with society. Check out this NASA webpage which deals exclusively with this information. Its a very interesting source of information.
