This is Shuttle Atlantis with the payload bay doors open. This will be the next shuttle rolling out as Discovery sets off for its mission this week. Posted by Picasa

While it has done some good, I fear the shuttle (and the ISS) have been blunders on the whole. Huge costs with few gains, and most results fall far short of initial goals.

For the money spent on the shuttle and ISS, we could have continued to go to the moon, and gone to mars, and done far more astronomy.

Instead we have the faulty, expensive, and dangerous shuttle and the iss which is a drop of what it was supposed to be.
