U.S. willingness to pay tax for a space mission to a newly discovered planet 2016

This statistic shows the share of Americans that would support a one off tax of 10 U.S. dollars on every American to fund a mission to explore the newly discovered planet Proxima Centauri, by generation. According to the September 2016 survey, 63 percent of Americans aged 18-34 supported the idea.

Would you support or oppose a special tax on all Americans of $10 to pay for an unmanned mission to Proxima Centauri to survey a newly discovered planet?
