That $8K doesn't include your ride to space.
It's a sin to send crap into space. At least the LEO orbits don't pollute orbital space for long, they de-orbit fast enough. But given the cost, and the fact that so few people can get their experiments flown, it is the experimenter's responsibility to not be frivolous. Sending up something that can't dissipate its own heat, that outgasses the electrolyte from its capacitors, etc., is just stupid and wasteful.
