    Such a shame America doesn't have the will to carry on with their own rockets.
    Now they are going to rely on Russia to take their people up to the ISS.

    40 years ago, that would have been unimaginable!

    The US space missions have brough mankind lots of very useful things, and the list is growing.
    It would be a shame to see the end of space adventure and the risk and reward it brings.
    Sure, it costs a lot of money, but without it we wouldn't have had things like cassette tapes which led to DVD's, digital photography would be years behind what it is now, if it would be around at all, and even little things like the high temperature ceramics we cook with may not be around.
    How would life be without satellites and sat nav?

    All American needs is bit more will.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    I suppose it is all about cost cutting at the moment.
