Spend the budget some way instead of putting Space Shuttle's in the Sky.


Here is an idea-


The next joint venture----


Some mulit billion dollar company + Reality TV + NASA...  


Survivor winner + Big Brother + Amazing Race winners all set to go into the International Space Station..

How is that for forward thinking....
