The Space Shuttle program is dead and in the process of being buried. We don't have a plan to return to the outer limits of mankind's reach any time soon. Well, we didn't. The Onion is reporting NASA's aspiring new plan to put a man on a bus to Cleveland, Ohio, by 2013.
It's hoped that the bus mission, "Chariot I", will restore the nation's sense of wonder after the failed Constellation program left NASA without a viable replacement to the shuttle program. The program is estimated to cost $US360 in tax funds, and will span six US states and 1955km. For full coverage of the ambitious new plan, head over to The Onion.
