After 30+ years, and billions of dollars, we have a totally useless space station, a dangerously unsafe shuttle fleet, and yet another rover mission. After the Apollo missions (NASA's only really impressive achievement), they lost their direction. We should have people walking on Mars by now. Instead, we have another entrenched government bureaucracy, whose only apparent goal is to secure next year's funding. Gee, I wonder when the next NASA budget comes up for renewal? Questions: 1. Why aren't there life-detecting devices on the rover missions? 2. Why is the color balance drastically skewed to red on all Mars photos? 3. Why is the Cydonia region carefully ignored? We have to pull the plug on NASA, reorganization just isn't going to do it. We have to get good, solid, PUBLIC discussions going about how we should fund planetary exploration. We certainly don't need the scientific/research establishment to tell us how to do it. Our tax dollars are not at work at NASA. Predictions (for the record): 1. Liquid water exists on Mars now. 2. Microbial life, and forms up to lichens/fungi exist on Mars now. 3. Their DNA will match that of earthly forms. 4. Evidence of intelligent life in Mars' past will be proved (at the rate things are going, probably not in my lifetime). End of Rant and I still don't feel any better, Albert G.
