Just sent a letter to Bush's Space Panel. They want public input so I decided to give the just that.
Letter to Bush's Space Panel.
Won't hold my breath for a reply. NASA has the balls of a spider monkey. Their zero risk policy ensures they will never achieve anything of any lasting significance. They still think they are hot stuff for reaching the moon. Big bloody deal. For the money they spent on getting there we could have put hotels in orbit around Jupiter. Apollo killed the space age as far as I'm concerned. Everything they did was wrong. Even the reasons behind it were stupid. Every available dollar was redirected from other more promising programs and wasted on putting a US flag on the moon. Mankind my arse. That was no united nations flag. Not that I don't think the US deserved to put its own flag up there. I just think they were lying hypocritical sons of bitches. They only went there to beat the Russians and quickly lost interest once that objective was achieved. To our detriment. If that money had been spent on Orion then by now we would probably be building second generation starships. Nasa sucks.
