Forget the Space Shuttle

This is where the real exploration of space takes place:

Are we alone? Or was there life on another planet? NASA's $2.5 billion dream machine, the Mars Science Laboratory, aims to take the first steps toward finding out when it nears Mars' surface on Monday.

I'm afraid, with America's tax base crumbling, and the country deeply in debt, that this program can't go on much longer.  Priorities.  Priorities.

Too bad.
