    Just as I said in my last thread about Obama handing over the reigns of the ISS to the Russians, this was a treasonous act committed by the president. Obama ended our domination of space after 50 years of ingenuity and American pride. After widespread American heartbreak after Obama cancelled the Orion Constellation Program that was to take us back to the moon and with the last landing of the Space Shuttle last Thursday, Russia declared the 'era of the Soyuz' has begun. Now the Russians have just come out and stated that they will now let the International Space Station de-orbit and fall into the China Sea like they did with their Mir Space Station because they don't have a space vehicle like the shuttle powerful enough that can fire it's thrusters while docked to the station so it can gain a higher orbit after being tugged by the earths gravity for a while causing it to come closer to the earth. What this amounts to is them letting multi billions of dollars of American taxpayers money and technology fall into the sea. I said in the last thread that with Obama basically de-activating our space role was putting America's national security at risk. I warned that Russia now has free reign to roam the orbit of the earth possibly de-activating our military and civilian satellites putting American communication and missile targeting systems at risk while we have no space capability to travel into orbit to counter them. My fellow Americans, our usurper who has been acting president is systematically dismantling this nation piece by piece in an attempt to destabilize the state of the union and put us in peril and there seems to be no stopping him permanently.


    Russia Plans to Sink the International Space Station in 2020 - FoxNews.com

    Excerpts from the Article:

    We will be forced to sink the ISS. We cannot leave it in orbit as it is a very complicated and a heavy object," Roscosmos' deputy head Vitaly Davydov said in an interview posted on the agency's website

    SNIP~

    After sinking hundreds of millions into construction of the space station -- billions if you include the cost of the space shuttle flights that carried the ISS modules into orbit -- knowledgeable government sources and NASA spokesmen were aghast at Davydov's plans to sink the station in the ocean

    First of all, let's have the constitutional conservatives show us where in the Constitution does the federal government get the power to spend money exploring space?

    Then they can tell us why their beloved for profit private sector hasn't stepped up and filled the gap here.

    I'm just happy you didn't try and tie this back to how this will help Palin become the next president. Refreshing.

    If we only spent money on things specifcally mentioned in the Constitution, we'd still be living in the late 1700's.

    Excellent point. Maybe you can talk some sense in to the far right who insist it must be stated verbatim in the constitution, otherwise our government should not be involved with it.

    Private sector will probably have to get pass the EPA which will be hard to do these days.. They will find some environment reason why the private sector cant take over. Obama not only killed the jobs within NASA he also killed the small business around NASA .They estimate that the loss of jobs for closing NASA will be 10K or more.

    I am all for space exploration, but never considered it the role of the government with the exception of sattelite defense systems.
    Likewise, if the economy allows, I am confident the slack WILL be picked up by the private sector and not concerned about the station being sunk by Russia.

    Oh, my! You have been paranoid projection dreaming again. Just back away slowly and when I snap my fingers you will awaken.
