@SGecko the US may not be doing the whole rocket thing anymore but that dosnt mean your giving up on space. its just going to be a more international thing now. russia still has a program, theres ESA (i wish we europeans did more), china and others. i suppose what i worry about is it becomming a completly private venture because then the general idealism of organisations like nasa may be lost.

Susan thank you for posting the article!! My only concern is that GM partnered with NASA. Hope they put more quality assurance into R2 than they do in automobiles!
And someone with more knowledge on the subject please chime in...Aren't the Japanese way ahead of everyone else on robotic tech???

Thanks, Mrina for the article :)

Neil Armstrong and others SPEAK ... and I don't think they're too happy with the current status of the space program:
