This is the latest salvo from the Space Frontier group, urging Congress to take the money currently allocated towards finishing the Shuttle missions (approximately $20 billion, according to them) and redirect it towards commercial development of space.
It’s hard to argue with that logic. I was a fan of the shuttle for a long time, not so much because I thought the Shuttle was the be-all and end-all of space delivery systems, but it was SOMETHING that kept a US presence in space. But the Columbia disaster really changed my mind.
