Let it be known that I am very interested in space exploration and think that it is worth time, money, and even lives since that is realistically required. I’m thrilled that NASA accidentally was involved in a successful mission and I don’t mind taking full advantage of the enthusiasm and knowledge that the Spirit affords. However, NASA and the feds in general are still woefully inept (and possible rightly so) at accepting the level of risk necessary to make serious progress in space. If they’re willing to junk the shuttles and the ISS and start on something worthwhile (like colonization of the moon or Mars) then I might be willing to speak with them. 🙂
