BIKEBOY Posted March 9, 2011 Report Share Posted March 9, 2011 It's a sad day at NASA. The space shuttle program is over now, after years of arguably wasted tax dollars. As far as safety goes, they had a fairly successful track record given how dangerous that process really is? Loading up a cylinder with thousands of gallons of explosive liquid and parking four or five human bodies on top of it, and lighting the fuse! Eeeesshhh! NOT ME MAN!! So, with that said...anyone ever see one of these things blast off close up? I don't mean on the nightly news...I mean standing the ,what, two miles away that they make you stand down there in FLA.? It has got to be some kind of sight close up? And the sound???? Anyone...David, you live down that way? What can possibly be next for them? There is no way in H-LL they will fold up the agency and cease total operations. Maybe they have some other sort of ship under wraps that is safer, faster, and is gonna try to get people to Mars?
