Hubble Space Telescope huggers are celebrating the iconic observatory's 20th birthday, even as scientists anticipate the next generation of bigger and more powerful successors to the famed orbital instrument. But there's bigger and better science yet to come.
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is scheduled to go online in a few years. And a slew of new space observatories are also being considered, even if none have received the official go-ahead yet.

I was thinking about all the stories I have seen about how we have been going to the Moon and Mars for years-with different craft than what the public is aware of.
The more stories I see like these, it makes me tend to believe we don't have special craft that can come and go from Earth to Space easily. We are spending tons of money on stuff like Hubble and this Hames Webb, to do things we can already do (if you believe we have special craft etc).
Matter of fact, the more I look at our Space program (and the other countries) I'm more convinced there aren't aliens/ufos and if they are, we are working with them.
Still I tend to believe that humanity must see for ones self, otherwise why live and exist? Yet I do see the the reason to have robotic and telescopic craft venturing on our behalf. We need to leave home and do what the universe is there for, explore!
