I am somewhat bummed out. NASA launched the last shuttle, after it lands we will have no more manned space program
NASA the ones that guided our race to the moon, After our first missteps, public, embarrassing photos while the Soviets launched Sputnik through theSoviet Space Program the soviets got into space first with Sputnik, they also got the first man into space with Yuri Gegarian, We caught up then passed the Soviets, who had viewed the race to space as a means of proving the superiority of the soviet system over capitalism and the west.
Now the program is going away, especially since obummer stated earlier in his administration that NASA's main job was to outreach to the muslim world. Obummer is clueless about American Exceptionalism and NASA is part of it. I am afraid that this is a further symptom of our decline as a nation. We are turning our back on our leadership and basically letting the chinese have it, and to a lesser extent Russia.
I want NASA to come back, we have to get rid of that amateur in the whitehouse and get somebody in there that believes in America.
