Two habitation modules emblazoned with the United Kingdom's Union Jack could launch to the International Space Station (ISS) by 2011 under a
new plan devised by British scientists and engineers.
The proposal — not yet official with the ISS partnership — would not only improve living conditions on board the space station, but would also
allow the United Kingdom to join other nations that have a foothold in space.

the current government policy is not to engage in manned space exploration of any kind. I honestly cant see that changing and in my opinion $1billion
could be better spent on non-manned space missions instead
I have to agree with Yeti101 to an extent, i am quite into the idea of sending more probes out, i just wish they would send them to the more
interesting parts of the solar system, Europa perhaps, or some other interesting parts of Mars. Manned spaceflight is extremely risky, in fact, i am
pretty surprised man managed to make it to the moon in the 1960's with the technology they had!
