    If we are in the midst of a major depression, we will not be funding any kind of exploration. We are still cleaning up from teetering on the brink of a worldwide depression, and must prevent any kind of slide back to that position.

    While that is the case, we must rethink our space program, and put the money where it will do the most. At this time, manned space programs are expensive beyond their returns. As the technology improves, then we can do them at a lower cost and risk because of the information gained with the less expensive unmanned program.
