NASA and it's shuttle program inspired us to dream bigger and make a difference.
We could more than double NASA's budget by just spending one penny for every tax dollar. How hard would that be? Space travel is too important to shy away from just because it costs a little more money. And hey, if it means that we take away some money from war to do it, then that's just great. Together we can make a difference, I've run across a website called Penny4NASA where you can go to sign a petition and send a letter to your congress member. It's easy, I've already done it. If you are like me and think that the United States should continue to look to the stars, then I hope you'll join me and sign a petition or talk to your congress members. The least you could do is spread the word.
