I will continually argue that the loss of the space program as we know it is not only sad but unwise. Just stop and think how much of our economy is related to discoveries that came out of the NASA program and how many of those could never have been realized before we pushed the boundaries of our atmosphere. GPS, cell phones, satellite imagery, food preservation, and solar technologies. If we don’t dream, if we don’t explore, how do we expect to play a leadership role in the world?
