What is the best reason to fund expensive astronomy / space exploration projects? Many projects cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Couldn't this money be better spent elsewhere?

Just, I am a big fan of science but I got asked this question recently and I did not like my own answer. I am hoping you can all have a better one.
