    As someone who grew up proud of America's achievements in space, this tears my heart out. Obama's kiss of death on our Space Shuttle Program means the end of Mission Control.

    I can't wait until this Marxist motherfucker is booted out of the WH.

    Yeah he thought it more prudent to make NASA employees make muslims feel better about themselves.

    Obama Gives NASA a New Mission< July 5th 2010

    I remember when the first moon mission went off, I was able to see it go up from my vantage point here in Florida where I have most missions when I was home and not stationed elsewhere (USAF).

    I share your sentiments.

    The problem is not the shuttle program shutting down. It's 30+ years old now, well past it's useful and SAFE lifespan. It needed to be shut down.

    The problem is not funding the replacement, and cutting funding for NASA and the program in general.

    you really have no clue, do you?

    the shuttle program has run it's course. the decision to nix it was made before obama took office.

    granted, you might be able to lay a little of the blame for not having a ready replacement at his feet - he has after all reduced their funding - but then again i doubt it would take a very long search to come up with quote after quote complaining about the spending obama has done

    so make up your fucking mind. that or come out and just be honest - you'll hate obama no matter what he does - even if he isn't the one that did it.

    As previously posted, Bush cancelled the Shuttle because of design flaws and ordered replacements.

    Obama cancelled the replacements and left us without a manned space program.

    Bush cancelled the Shuttle after the Columbia investigation discovered design flaws and he ordered a replacement,

    Obama killed all the replacements.

    It's 100% Obama's fault we no longer have a manned space program and will have to beg the Russians to hitch a ride.

    Don't fret. Lot's of other countries are developing as you implode. BRIC can handle the space program.
    You guys keep oil hunting.
