Gah, I hate to wax political in a science forum, but if the USA stopped killing brown dudes we could probably be getting in on this action! Man, being involved in any kind of probe to the outer planets or their moons again would be so awesome! Aside from the practical technological benefits any space mission engenders there is a certain beautiful glory to helping find out things humans NEVER knew before!
