my views on our failing space program

rest assured, there will always be a space program…it may not be ours (referring to the USA), but other countries now have the foothold to become the leaders in the industry.
their economies will grow because of it. ours will not.
our brain trusts will have to go where the money is.
millionaires have already paid other countries (Russia comes to my immediate mind) to take a ride up into space and hang out at the space station (and if i had the money, i would do the very same thing).
hopefully, the private sector in this country will be able to pick up the pieces and have enough forward thinking to make the space industry something to be proud of and profitable (and hence helpful to the economy).
