NASA and the final Shuttle Launch

09 Jul

So yesterday I watched the final Space shuttle launch and I have to say its kinda sad, actually the fact that its the last launch is not the sad part. The part that is so sad is that we are outsourcing the space program. Obviously it seems that the private space market has not taken off due to a very limited market. I also know that its proboly a smart decision to not continue the space shuttle program for a whole list of technological and financial reasons.

But damm, making a contract with the Russians to ferry us to the ISS, I just feel like JFK must be rolling in his grave. Maybe its a sign of how we have “evolved” but more likely its a negative reflection on how Americans have lost the American Dream.
