NASA will back to sending Americans to space soon. Boeing and SpaceX just won the contracts to taxi people back and forth to the International Space Station. For the last few years we've had to rely on Russia’s space program to get our astronauts to and from.

I still hold out hope we’ll send a human to Mars in my lifetime. Although time is running out for me on the research, ship building, testing and achieving the journey.

For only the reason of the moon landing I wish I was a bit older. I would have loved to have seen that on TV. At any rate this is a step in the right direction. Who knows with private contractors being a bigger part of the space program now maybe we’ll achieve bigger feats in a shorter amount of time?
