    Indeed, what an embarrassment that Israel, with it’s 1969 economy only 2 years after the six day war, didn’t have the United State’s multi billion dollar space budget which was primarily allocated to beat the Russian commies in the space race (never mind the fact that the United States itself currently has no such budget and has had none like it for nearly 50 years).
