NASA has delayed the launch of the space shuttle Discovery due to a circuitry glitch to the back-up systems that was found earlier Tuesday.
The launch will now slide 24 hours, to Thursday at approximately 3:30 p.m.
Why the suborbital space tourism is TOO DANGEROUS >>>
Read my article before buy a $200,000 suborbital ticket 😀
Good, please send Dr. Bad into orbit too. Thank you.
Domainers Gate #1. The Virgin spokesperson stated publicly on CoasttoCoastAM that a space vehicle would crash or blowup eventually. It's part the risk involved. But the owner Branson and his family will still be on board the maiden voyage.
NASA lost 2 space shuttles and Thursday will the shuttle programs last mission. Common decency requires recognition of those who perished so this crew can end the program with this mission.
Unfortunately we have a president who hates the USA so Thursday's launch and mission will most likely be business as usual with no reference to those killed in what really has been a waste of time, money and human lives.
The procedure is:
1.) Locate Earth like planet using telescopes.
2.) Send probes.
3.) Genetically design long distance high speed space travelers through trial and error.
4.) Design vehicle around space travelers superior abilities.
4.) Design incubator to carry one male and female in a form of development.
5. Launch space vehicle 100 years from now. Maybe ninety.
oops. It's 4, 5 and 6. I added one and forgot to change the numbers.
earth like planet. If your garden gets boring, why not just go hang out in somebody elses yard. Heaven knows, your only destiny is it ruin it!? But beware of dogs.
There was a nifty ceiling up there until you idiots cracked it with your rockets.
Yes, it makes so much more sense to spend tens or hundreds of times as much on wars and foreign aid... or subsidies to corn producers...NOT!
If it wasn't for the space program you'd have no personal computers, cell phones, or the Internet.
Basically, Jim is an unenlightened dolt. Curiosity and exploration are deep wired into our basic consciousness.
... and let's not forget weather and other earth observing and monitoring satellites... and GPS so Jim can get turn-by-turn directions when he gets lost, which is probably quite often.
NASA's shuttle program was based on a lie. Congress funded this program because NASA promised US an inexpensive way to deliver cargo into space. That never happened. I'm glad this useless waste is reaching it's end. And it's really sad that so many people died for nothing...oh wait, they died so "the Dude" could have a cell phone.
@Phil... Go ask ANY astronaut if it was a "waste", I believe the unanimous answer would be "no". I suppose Hubble was also a waste as well. Oh, and hey buddy, the cell phone reference, et.al., was in reference to the space program in general as being the major impetus behind microelectronics.
