End of an era.

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

1969: Man walks on the Moon and Concorde, the Worlds 1st Supersonic Commercial plane takes off for the 1st time!

2012: We no longer have a manned vehicle that will escape the Earth's gravitational pull and we can no longer fly Supersonic Commercially.

43 years of "Progress"???

No 43 years of mismanagement of economies by inept politicians ! When the money is tight there seems to be little or none for any innovation
