Bark: Need Another Space Administration

Don't get me wrong, NASA have done amazing work over the years, but the decision (forced on NASA by budget cuts) to mothball the Space Shuttle before they even have a next generation replacement capable of putting people is orbit is, in my opinion, a catastrophic backwards step we may later regret.

Look at this and tell me there's nothing we can learn of value from going out into Space. (And bear in mind that the flat screen monitor you're viewing it on was developed directly from technology used by the Space Shuttle programme.)
