At this point in time, are we just wasting our money on supporting this adventure? We risk lives regularly to support the ship.

No one was a bigger supporter of the space program than me before the space shuttle days. The shuttle has never done what if was billed to do. We were told it would be able to take off at any time with very short notice. Instead it can take off after several months notice and only if there are no clouds in the sky.
The space station is even worse.
I still support a space program, but one done by humans who remain on earth.

Some of us thrive on taking risks and get out of bed in the morning. ; )

Didn’t you hear Bradbury on Coast last night, or don’t you agree with him?

“We’re learning a great deal from the space station, and one of things we may be learning is we shouldn’t have built this particular one,” said Howard McCurdy, a space public policy expert at American University.

He says this after we’ve spent $100 billion dollars and it is only half built.
