    People of the United States;
    At this point after reading some of the above comments and if they are representative of the marjority of thinking in this country,a large marjority are totally insane.How anyone can compare SP with Nazi SS is out of their minds.And to go after her daughter over a TV show is below slime.I have been around for almost 60 yrs and served with the United States armed forces.Have been around the world a few times and it astounds me how a large part of the American people have lost their moral compass.

    To the creators of SpacecraftX,
    What the hell were you high on when you designed this ship.
    Going back to 1950's parachute technology to land in the ocean is absolutely insane,if the next generation of spacecraft can not land in the vertical under power or land like the shuttle,it is usless.
