No way, shuttle program almost killed NASA, fer darn sure killed serious manned space exploration. Money should go to experimental deep space programs, with an emphasis on establishing perm base on moon. Only d*mn thing W ever said that makes any sense, though his goals are a little fuzzy.
Any number of good space truck options under developement already, should scrap old shuttles, they're WAY beyond intended operational life of lowest-bidder merchandise.
