    Come to think of it that was a mighty big footprint to a 5 year old

    Yep, and I miss all the really cool space stuff you got when mom & dad bought “Tang”. (The Astronauts took it to the moon.”)

    No, it’s not time to go back and leave some more. We can’t afford it.

    We’ve a got an economy in the toilet, 2 wars to pay for, and a whole bunch of people who don’t have health insurance.

    Maybe after we get those things taken care of we can think about leaving a whole bunch of money on the moon, but not before then.

    Yeah, Tang and that comment about what a sandy surface it was before steppin’ out.

    I would love to see the Earthrise from the moon. Pure science should always be funded, not everything must generate a financial profit.

    completely ignoring the fact that most of the technology that is the backbone for the advancements of the previous 40 years was developed for the moon landing.

    but don’t worry the chinese are going to put a man on the moon long before we get a replacement for the space shuttle, but that is the reason why they are a production economy and we are a service economy.

    If we really wanted to save money: cut NASA’s budget. Sorry, I grew up with the space program, but reality must step in some time. NASA gets about 17 billion a year.

    wndrwrthg, We agree for once. One of NASA’s biggest problems is priorities change every time we get a new president. For political reasons, Clinton invited Russia to join the Space Station team. Turned out to be one of the smartest moves ever made. If it were not for the Russians, we would have no Space Station.

    NASA–$17 Billion/yr Pentagon–$539 Billion/yr ( not including the wars) Which one is BETTER? We could cut the Defense budget in half, defend our country and pay for heath care, NASA and more –easily– but we are an insane nation in perpetual war footing–when will we stop the insanity?

    WE should have been to Mars and beyond by now! The budget to do that is very, very small compared to the obomination of national spending we’re going through now!

    the space station should look more like 2001(a c clark)than a tree house. More space, less war.

    I doubt it.

    Shouldn’t we clean up our act here first? I am a devout trekkie (especially TNG) but we must learn to cherish this planet and respect one another before we spread our bad habits to space. (Otherwise’ we risk being assimilated by a superior civilization that will turn us into mindless drones…oh, wait, TV is allready doing that)

    The moon is for tourists. There is nothing to mine there, so it’s not a logical spot for a base. Mars on the other hand may have resources.

    Itis amazing. We have ceased being a nation of dreamers and doers to a nation of timidity and bean counters. The same arguments were made in 1958 when the space program started and in the early 60’s with Mercury and Apollo and even upi to the moment when the landing happned 40 years ago. But there were very few who wondered if it was worth it when Armstrong put that foot down.

    We can STILL do anything we want to because we are Americans and we can. But we don’t want to.

    It is sad what we have become.
