The closest thing America has to a manned space program today...are old Star Trek reruns..
This is sickening. I was in the 1st grade when John glen orbitted the Earth in Mercury.
i was about ten years ols when the Gemini program started. I was a teenager when Apollo
was launched. Then years went by, after skylab and we got the Space Shuttles.
now Obama has scrapped the manned space program..why? to save money? Are you kidding?
The peripheral technologies that came out of the space program are beyond measure..
I guess teacher's unions and GSA parties have a higher priority then mere exploration and innovation.
