Lost in Space

I'm sympathetic to the argument that manned (personned?) space flight is an unnecessary expense as any exploration can be just as effectively carried out by robots. However there is some merit in the position that it is the drama of people in space that captures our imagination and so encourages public support for the space programme in general.

We are restless creatures who have an enormous appetite for adventure (well some us of do, I'm not that keen on extreme sports).

Something that The Nation should be considering before launching reflexively into an anti-Bush tirade - Lost in Space.
