space race

this is a personal piece in response to the cancelling of the US shuttle program earlier this year.

60 odd years it took between first powered flight and landing on the moon.

now 40 years after that and its hard not to see the space shuttle grounding as a gigantic step backward.

( bear in mind this is only one possible viewpoint, i am well aware of continuing plans for mars, and other non-manned explorations of our solar system)
