    If he were still alive - I wonder what JFK would think about the current state of the US space program.

    The space shuttles and the Space Station may be more scientific - but they lack the SEX APPEAL of the moon landings.

    Sicken. Obama destroyed what Bush tried to do to get us back to the moon and mars...Killed the shuttle without a replacement. Obama for this one move can kiss my ass. :evil:

    I think it is time to start concentrating on fixing the problems in this country instead of continuing to try and have manned spaceflight. We are at the stage where robotics can do almost all of the experiments needed and the associated costs that go with manned flight could be eliminated and that money used for infrastructure here in the US. We have too many communities water systems falling apart, bridges in disrepair, not to mention roads. I do not know how many times I have seen where a community in Indiana had to boil water because of a water main break. County roads are falling apart and they have no money to repave them, they are even talking about converting some back to gravel.

    Manned spaceflight is a dream that we cannot afford now.
