A Shaming Anniversary

40 years since Armstrong's giant step- and we've been shuffling our feet ever since.  Yes, we've built a space station, landed robots on Mars and sent probes to the outer planets, but where's the lunar colony that Kubrick and Clarke envisaged us building by 2001? Where are the manned expeditions?

I believe we've let ourselves down.
