    The idea of flying to Mars in a space ship gives me the fucking willies!!!

    As soon as I no longer could see the Earth, I would be intensely frightened.

    Which is precisely why you're not an astronaut. ;)

    This is actually one of the areas where I agree with RGS (shocking, I know). You can't gut the space program, divert what resources remain to mucking around in low Earth orbit for the next umpty-squat years, encourage almost solely commercial (profitable) applications for space and realistically expect to get to Mars.

    And why not Mars? The pure science alone that would come from putting human hands and a human brain on another planet would be priceless, never mind the technological advances (and employment, and re-emphasis on science and math, and maybe just plain old excitement) that would come with an Apollo-style Mars program. Obama is being a wuss, there's plenty that can be cut to fund it if he could find his cajones.

    STFU, complain about spending, now complain when Obama cuts something. And just because we are at a tough time fiscally doesn't mean in the future, in his lifetime that still has many decades to go, that the program won't be started up again and succeed.

    Many? He is in his 40's he has not that many decades to go and he pissed away the next 20 by canceling the space program. You are a FUCKING MORON. Did you get your science degree in El Salvador?
