Are you happy or sad the Space Shuttle has been retired? What do you think the next goal for humans in space should be, and what do you think Russia and China, the new leaders, will do next? Is it important enough to get funding before other needs?
See: What’s next for U.S. Space Program?
I am a little of both, though I am honestly not too invested in the whole show. I think the next phase of exploration will need a new approach, since our current method is really quite archaic. I mean we are trying to get so much bulky metal into orbit, using copious amounts of fossil fuels…
There must be a better way! Aren’t there any aliens we could hire for consulting? Until we have proper alien consultants lined up, I do not recommend any more funding!
