Thank you, Viper, for taking to the time to do a tribute to a great bunch of people, and I salute all those who would reach to the stars.

Good hunting,

Hail to Columbia, to those who died there, but also to all those who started and have been pushing forward the space exploration.

But the (western) humankind got weak. The whole project got stopped because of death of just 8 brave people, who certainly wouldn't wish it to stop.

Imagine what would have happened to the exploration of America... From the first Columbus' voyage only 1 ship returned out of 3, 67% loss, in crew members much more!

I have a book about aviation written in 1970. It says there "60 years after the first flight of an object heavier that air, a man was walking on the moon. That's an amazing progress! It is difficult to imagine what we shall see in another 60 years."
Now, 40 years are gone and what was the progress? Nothing. Nada. Nichevo. Zero.

It's true. But you have to understand that race to the moon was not simply the one of human spirit reaching for new frontiers. Moon had a very strong strategic value, as well (Cold War stuff). Since we do not have the same amounts of money to play around with anymore, it's no wonder the technological leaps have slowed down to a crawl, or even taken a few steps back.

Hi Rajvosa,
you are very much right about the _other_ reasons for the space exploration. This is actually why the countries putting the space race forward now are those also upgrading their military forces.
But the money is still there, since the world's economy has grown since the 70's, it just got diverted to other, more worthy ends, such as unemployment benefits.
