Edit - btw read a couple of weeks ago that Philip Jose Farmer died as well, and that it was actually him who'd written that novel under the pseudonym Kilgore Trout rather than Vonnegut who I'd always assumed was behind it. Might try some of his stuff finally, I keep meaning to.
Hmm, I thought I remember watching a Kurt Vonnegut movie or TV movie over a decade ago. I really wonder how some of his work can be envisioned for film. I think it's surreal qualities would be fun to see envisioned.

To sum it up, I feel our space program ended up like this. "It's one small step for man. One giant leap for man kind. Oops I fell on my butt after that leap and can't get up anymore."
