    This shows it isn't profitable.

    The left really doesn't understand how to make things work. That's why they want free shit.

    Actually, you're ROOTING for them to go down the drain- and let the REST of the world dominate the industry of the future. Anything to help the USA under Obama fail....mindless obstruction for 3 1/2 years..

    Watching the debate now- Collins/Hochul...

    its funny you say that. I work for NASA and served in the USAF for 8 year. I am of the firm belief that asteroid mining is what could separate America from the pack, once again.

    truly a goal worth obtaining.


    NASA would need Iraq war type funding, 2-3 Trillion. Apparently Republicans are fine with spending trillions in a Muslim nation for no apparent reason when we could have been moving our manned space flight program along.
