I guess Iran is more serious than I thought

The more the merrier. Space Race. Space Race!

Whole lotta diggin' goin' on!

FAA that is. This is progress!

*** UPDATE *** The key point of this article is that NASA is turning over low Earth orbit to commerical firms and concentrating on exploration. I predict a new era of great achievements by NASA if it gets enough money. The space race with the rest of the world, should force the Congress and whoever the next President is, to provide that money.
