Poll: Should America Go Back to the Moon Soon—or Set Sail for Mars?

Shuttle Discovery makes final landing in Washington area, headed for Smithsonian display.

The space shuttle Discovery landed for the final time Tuesday—piggybacking a jumbo jet.  Destined for the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA, Discovery thrilled Washington-area observers. But where is the thrill of space exploration now that the shuttle program is over? Where should NASA take us now? You tell us.

why don't we just ship nasa over to china since they have all of our money and advanced space technology now......if it's good enough for the private sector it's good enough for government...

So much has and can be done with robotic exploration. It is so expensive to support a human in space, it just doesn't make sense. And the best projects: Mars rovers, Hubble, visits to asteroids and comets, and such, could be supported by donations and commercial ventures and take that burden off the taxpayer. America's coming bankruptcy may force that anyway.
