Swedish astronaut Christer Fuglesang is disappointed that the Swedish government is reducing its funding of the European space program.
Firstly, I personally believe more work needs to be done down here on mother Earth than in space. Secondly, Sweden is a really really really small country and can hardly find an international edge in space travel.
Fuglesang should be happy about what he achieved and the sponsorship given by the Swedish and European tax payers. And come down to Earth and join the rest of us in the hard work of making life on this planet sustainable.
