    Something about Balanced Journalism, and you make a better arguement if you can show that those who would oppose you, do so from a basis of (falsely) suspended trust/belief system(s).

    Makes them look like the real kooks, not the Shuttle people.

    I recently read http://www.space.com/businesstechnology/technology/xprize_030611.html [Broken] from Space.Com, that says the number of people volunteering to ride in X-Prize vehicles actually increased after the last Shuttle failure.

    And
    http://www.space.com/missionlaunches/atlas5_pluto_030725.html [Broken] says that NASA announced Thursday that the Pluto mission is a GO. I was releived to hear it, since we've never been there and know so little about it.

    That's a pretty interesting effect, bout the X-Prize. And I'm not surprised that the unmanned missions have been relatively unscathed. I know that there's a faction at NASA, esp. JPL, that feel that the manned part of NASA is a complete waste of resources. I'm inclined to agree because we can accomplish much more with probes than humans in near-space exploration.
