It was a great marvel of technology and I'm going to miss watching it launch.

Re: In Honor of the Near End to NASA's Shuttle Program,

And how many of those launches carried military payloads? Look it up. You might be surprised. The space shuttle came into existence to lift heavy, military satellites into orbit. In adjusted dollars, each shuttle launch was more expensive than a Saturn V moon rocket. At the time of the Challenger disaster, astronauts were going through launch and re-entry without spacesuits, and with no possible way of surviving an aborted launch.

The Challenger astronauts were alive and conscious for two minutes and forty-five seconds as the plummeted straight down toward the Atlantic Ocean. When the first human remains were found, they were placed in garbage cans and put in the back of a pickup truck to avoid publicity. If you think I am making any of this up, you should do some reading. It's all in the public record -- no crazy conspiracy theory.

If NASA had learned from Challenger, they could have installed a drogue parachute system that might possibly have saved the Columbia crew, but they didn't. The space shuttles are not even equipped with emergency transponders, if you can believe that. h They weigh ten pounds, and NASA says that's too much weight, even though every shuttle is burdened with bullshit flags and patches to be given out as keepsakes to politicians and other swells.

The shuttle was an unsafe, overpriced, primarily military launch vehicle. It is long overdue for a well thought out replacement.

Re: In Honor of the Near End to NASA's Shuttle Program,

With 2 colossal failures, and a ridiculous amount of money spent for very little return, it'll be surely missed.

Educating your children is more important than even leaving them an inheritance. In the USA they've ruined education and left the kids with a whopping debt.

Isn't spending other people's money what communists do?
