Back in the Apollo era it seamed logical that by 1985 we would land on mars it seamed like the second step. But really the Apollo program wasent about space exploration. It had one main goal to beat the soviets. What happened with the publics interest in space exploration. I ask people at my school they think space exploration is "boring" or when it comes to the moon they say "been there done that." What happened man. What do they find so disinteresting about exploring space.
