Default NASA Budget Cuts: 23,000 Americans lose jobs

The same government that advocates a "better life" for border jumping illegal aliens has defunded NASA's manned space flight program and is throwing 23,000 AMERICANS out on the street. Toilet scrubbing, leaf raking Mexicans are treated more favorably by our own government than American rocket scientists. Our manned space program will be grounded.

Our new "president" can "create jobs" for ACORN thugs and send billion$ to Haiti, but nothing for America's manned space program. After defunding the manned space program, what are they going to take away next? Electricity? Indoor plumbing?

I just hope all of those 23,000 Americans losing their jobs didn't forget to give generously to Hatian relief.

The space program is indirectly responsible for a lot more than 23k jobs

Not to mention , America is suppose to be a nation of rocket scientists

Not toilet cleaners

I guess we know who dumbomba sides with.

Default Fair.

The space shuttles themselves, that is the vehicles, were scheduled for retirement by NASA itself. The vehicles have been obsoleted, too old, too fatigued. Plus the space station is now completed. No more parts to fly up.


However, there was a plan to develop new flying vehicles. But it has a gap of time of a few years. In the interim the USA, NASA intends to fly in Russia's craft paying them millions per trip.

I'm not confident that anything Obama says is dependable. He was going to close Guantanamo - right !

The criticism then should be focused on his apparently cancelling the new development program. And the outsourcing of the flights - to Russians - while Americans sit at home unemployed.

Remember Guys, keep paying out the rope. Let him hang himself. He is giving the GOP plenty of ammunition to ensure that he is a one term President.

Lament at what he is doing to the country but rejoice that he is digging himself in deeper.

The shuttle was a huge mistake from the beginning. We should never have used the shuttle for anything but what it was designed for which was to bring material in space back down to earth without suffering reentry.

Our basic technical challange for space at this point was to create a reentry system outside of "lifting bodies" which is what the shuttle was. We need something like the Russians have been using since the beginning -- a soft retro-rocket lander for landing on earth, not water like the Apollo system and all US systems previous.

We have had some ideas, mostly bad, that have yet to see fruit.

We should clone the Russian system and arrange for sites for soft landings and keep things rolling.

Most 3rd world countries don't have space programs

And it appears now we don't either

If it wasn't for the liberal idiots we might already have been to mars

How many countless billions have been thrown into social programs that might have employed millions in
a ramped up space program?

The point of a national space program -- a government program -- is not to employ people, it is to make progress in space exploration. To suggest otherwise is a little "liberal" itself.
