The Sad State of Space Exploration

I had previously posted about NASA recycling 40-50 year old ideas, which were good, and abandoning a lot of its post 70s ‘vision’ and flashy expensive crap. While this new idea is a step in the right direction, does it not imply that political and bureaucratic considerations destroyed the manned US space program over the last 40 years?

    NASA isn´t about going to space but keeping you OUT of space.

    That´s why all the good old working German rocket designs were so efficiently scrapped. And any real innovation is effectively discarded by the NASA bureaucracy.

    Expect more paper-tiger/computer animation mirages like this in the future for you billions of tax dollars.
