Re: Set your own goals for NASA

Sorry to raise some cynical points but lets say...

1. Achieve something that genuinely grabs the public imagination again without a budget greater than the GDP of the United States.

2. Send manned missons ot space in a vehicle that is less likely to have them coming back to Earth as ashes.

NASA has seriously blotted its copybook recently - with an embarassing series of failures and Bush's proclamation about manned missions looking more like an attempt to be JFK than a genuine commitment.

Maybe a genuinely international approach as in the ISS might help with further manned missions - maybe it is stime for NASA to start taking a back seat to a present day UESPA?
