yah, and to think we get reamed for making a deal to get 4 subs from the Brits for a trade of unused military base property worth 750 million. I wish we had the budget of the Yanks...

I agree, thats alot of money.

Keep in mind that this might get us a better understanding of priciples of time and gravity.... One step closer to Warp factor 9, and transporters!

(maybe it is worth it.)

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.
