  3. The space program needs to continue, it provides us with so much, however, it needs to be able to fund itself… The problem is exactly what you said we are using technology that is 50 years old… the idea and concept of a rocket is that you get a whole bunch of crap and stick it in a container, then throw it overboard real fast to make you move…. it would be like getting in a car full of bowling balls and throwing them backwards really fast to get the car to move….. this is stupid…. we have got to find a way to make space economically viable!!! Why are we throwing away money on systems that wont work? They have an idea that involves a sort of a space bridge, same idea as a sling shot, hook a very long cable to earth, and the other to a large object out in space, because of centifugal force, the large object is pulled away from earth pulling the cable tight, now just stick an elevator on the cable and you are in outerspace in 8 hours for 100 dollars. Come on people lets get this thing together!

  4. one considers that the shuttle was primarily designed and constructed in the middle 1970s

    As long as they don’t get rid of the 8-track player in the new crafts, I’ll be glad to see a new space vehicle replace the Shuttle.
