I went to Disneyland but earlier than that, don't really remember much.
I think once we got to the moon public interest kind of dropped off.
Then the shuttle program came along and it seemed like such a great possibility, a reusable vehicle.
I really think, though, it's time for private industry to take over. They'll make it cost effective and reinstate the competitive nature we had in the Apollo days.
There's plenty of money on the table to motivate development of a delivery vehicle.
