    Kennedy had a lot to work with to get people excited. It was a space race against the Godless Communists in an age of testosterone fueled missile envy.

Enough of the right kind of buzz can mean more and better funding in the future. Giving up now has less potential. There is a lot to be excited about in Mars Exploration right now. That can't be bad for the good guys.
