Scuttle the shuttle!

June 30th, 2006

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.

I wonder what LiftPort and/or Brad Edwards could do with $20 billion…
