It ought to be low. We are hitched to the defence and space bugets, both inevitably to decline, hitting Huntsville hard.

We have a highly educated work force, chocked with engineers. We could look to biomedical engineering, the machinery of medicine, to robots and Robotisc, to artificial intelligence, and many other fields. We need to just do it.
