YOUR THREE CENTS: Do you think the U.S. should step up its efforts in space exploration?

China landed its first mission to the Moon last Saturday.
The unmanned mission released a six-wheeled rover named "Jade Rabbit" to roll around the lunar surface, sending back high-definition images.
               
It's been 37 years since anyone landed anything on the moon.
And the U.S. has no immediate plans to head back there.
               
Most of the missions on the table now are aimed at deeper space.
But even those projects are facing big budget challenges.
               
NSA's Cassini mission to Saturn is looking at losing half its budget next year... and maybe another half in 2015.
               
And while we still send astronauts to the International Space Station...  most plans for future "near-earth" orbit missions like that will rely on the private sector.
               
But 33-percent of the people polled in the latest Rasmussen Reports survey say China's lunar probe is a bad thing for America.
               
Six percent (6%) think it's good for the U.S.
45-percent believe it has no impact.
