    The Russians lost interest, and with that, NASA's budget was sliced so that we could afford to bomb Cambodia. Once we got some rocks back, congress wasn't so supportive anymore and the public lost interest.

    We'd rather waste lives in a war half way around the world then expand humanity through the solar system. Sad but true.

    It's been a long time, so I don't remember whether it was Goddard or Oppenheimer who was asked where the 1st manned flights should go. I remember his response though - he said Mars. The moon was closer, but if that's where we went first, it would be the only place we'd go for a long time.

    Guess he was right.

    Mars would of been a suicide mission in the late 1960's. The moon was hard as it is but nearly all the attempts to send probes to Mars failed before 1970.

    Today we could easily go to the moon without breaking a sweet if we build the new rocket coming out next year.

    Just imagine if mankind spend as much exploring the universe as they spend killing each other.


    Who knows how far we'd have come by now?
