This week is a sad moment for America. We have ceded our lead and presence in space. I watched the space shuttle on its funeral journey aboard a 747 at Dulles earlier this week. Now the U.S. begs and buys seats as mere passengers aboard Russian space craft some at NASA and in the government not so long ago derided dismissively.
We end the week with the Russians in space and China planning on making claims on the moon. Our moon.
