its true that our quest for exploration is commendable ...
but what almost all dont understand is is true implications of this undertaking ...
sadly...... this is not like the first explorers who built and navigated sailing ships to explore vast oceans...

Yes the American Governments aspect of sending humans into space could be dead, but what is not dead is the American desire to explore space. America's space launcher for humanity is moving from Government into the hands of American free enyerprise system. Just look at Sierra Nevada's Dream Cast mini space shuttle that was created 30 miles to the north of me. It may still need an ok from the American Government to go into space, but that is a government problem of being to big and greedy.
