This week, NASA is preparing for the final space shuttle launch. Today, Jian talked a man who was there from the beginning, (Ret) Captain Robert Crippen. He piloted the first shuttle flight in 1981. He expressed disappointment that NASA is abandoning the shuttle program with no other way to send its astronauts into space. What do you think? Is human space travel worth the risk and expense? Does it matter that NASA is no longer leading the charge into the final frontier?
