The Hubble telescope will get a makeover! Finally, a little sense of priority in the space program. But I think the days of total government control over space exploration are just about over, and private enterprise will start making things happen. Which is all to the good. When companies can figure out a way to make a profit out of space, and devote a lot of energy to bringing down the cost, the real space era will have started. It can’t happen fast enough for me – I’m getting way too old, and that ticket to the moon is still not in my hand.
