Space Shuttle Ends without Replacement

I have to start out by saying I was a big fan of the space shuttle when it first came out in the late '70s.  I had a space shuttle model mounted on a 747 model hanging from the ceiling in my bedroom before I had Farrah's poster on the wall.  Granted, after Farrah's poster arrived, I paid very little attention to the space shuttle, or anything else, for that matter.

I don't know if its true that Obama is behind the retirement of the space shuttle.  I doubt he could do that all by himself.  I imagine their must have been a plan in place to phase out the shuttle program as we brought in its replacement.  Apparently, there won't be a replacement, at least for a few years.  I think that is a huge mistake.

Nine thousand highly educated American scientists are now out looking for work.  I hope they all stay out of the chicken coop business.  I really can't stand the competition.


  1. I thought NASA was now Obama's "Muslim outreach" program?

    According to Charles Bolden, that is what Obama told him it was...

    "BOLDEN: Before I became the NASA administrator he (Pres Obama) charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math. He wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.

    Typical Democrats...turn something educational into a "feel-good" program of failure.

  2. A former astronaut said this morning that he doesn't mind turning the space program over to private enterprise. But, he said he has a problem with the government paying private enterprise for coming up with something we invented in 1965.

    It is baffling what the Dems are willing to cut, and what they refuse to touch. Punish the hard-working, college educated NASA scientists, but reward the lazy, slovenly, high-school dropouts on welfare and foodstamps. Stupid liberals.

  3. The Muslim outreach program, formerly known as NASA, in an effort to promote Arab contributions to science and math has been shut down since no such contributions have been found.

    One more promise broken...

  4. Russia declares 'era of Soyuz' after shuttle.

    Moscow on Thursday declared it is now "the era of the Soyuz" after the US shuttle's last flight left the Russian system as the sole means for delivering astronauts to the International Space Station.
