Shuttle to Space Station

Liftoff of NASA’s fifth and final shuttle mission of the year happens Monday. Read about it on MSNBC.com.

The space shuttle is cool. It’s about the best thing the U.S.A. has going in the space department these days. Not that it’s a bad thing, but in the last twenty years, haven’t we moved past it?

Sadly, the answer is a resounding “No!”. Space technology has been in stasis around the world for at least 2 decades. Where has the pioneering spirit gone?
