NASA Budget: $0.

Down from it's regular budget of $2 back when it put a (hu)man on the moon.

US space travel is done for for the next decade at least. The next man on moon or mars or whatever will be either chinese(because they have a healthy dictatorship) or russian(because unlike US corrupted goverment which is being run by corporations whose only goal is more money their corrupted goverment is being run by mobsters whose goal is world/space domination).

The TSA Travel Safety Administration( which governs all of our airport security) has a bigger budget than NASA. Nothing is going to replace the shuttles for awhile. Anyone who says the NASA budget should remain or shrink is the same type of American that has no idea how to plan beyond 2 paychecks and is why we are in the situation we are in. Ignorance may be short-term bliss, but their kids and my kids will pay for it.

I concur. Such a cool museum. And they have the Enterprise so what is going to happen to that?

Okay?

I wasn't implying for NASA to do it, but if the government is going to hand out money for an exploration program, it should go to another agency to explorer the deep oceans. Maybe Aquaman?
