2. Complete the ISS! We have need of Microgravity research which we cannot do
Excuse my ignorance. What is microgravity research and why is it so important. Could there not be a single module up in the sky aka skylab style?
Do we really need such a big station?
I would prefer catapulting them over the coast to ocean...

I agree, why use outdated shuttles when we could have newer stuff? Why use them at all if they have such problems? NASA should start getting newer equipment or they won't be able to act on their dreams.
The people we need to be paying attention to are Burt Rutan,Steve Faucett and Paul Allan.
It was only a few years ago now Canadian Arrow entered the X PRIZE race in an attempt to capture the prize. We started with only two plastic models and a set of blueprints drawn from years of research into the V-2 rocket. Our competition ranged from small companies like ourselves to well entrenched competitors with years of experience and notoriety in the aerospace industry. We may have entered the race but our goal was more than just a trophy and a prize, we wanted a business that could lead an industry. If one was to take a look at the events and strategies we applied during the race it would become clear we were doing more than just building a rocket.
