NASA Looking for Vulcan.

150_spock.jpgIn 1991, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenerry endorsed the triple-star system 40 Eridani as the sun of the planet Vulcan, home of Mr. Spock. Now, NASA is planning a mission called SIM PlanetQuest that will scan 40 Eridani for signs of planets that could sustain life. The primary star, 40 Eridani A, shows the possibility that a planet of mass similar to Earth’s could have formed there. The system is 16 light years from Earth. SIM Planet Quest is scheduled to launch in 2015. Link

Waste of time, effort, and money. We need to focus more on the I.S.S., the moon, and commercializing space flight. Missions to Mars, Pluto, or further are a waste of money. We'll never get there anyways so let's stop spending exorbitant amounts of money on things so far away.
