Another point for the "manned" side of the coin...

There's no computer that can be programmed with a true "sense of judgment" should there be unforseen complications or encounters. Just watching the movie "Apollo 13" should be a good indicator that no *computer* could've solved the problems faced by the flight crew...It took *ingenuity*, not a mass of digital coding.
