Thank you for your interest today. Where the hell were you for the other missions? We’ve been sending people into space on the shuttle since 1981. I appreciate your interest now, but we could have used it the past couple of years.
I know it’s all about budget. But did you know that you pay pennies to launch a shuttle? Pennies! You help send men to space without doing a thing and it costs you only a fraction of what you spent on that Mochafrapacapaalpacino.
We spend hours wondering over what Kim Kardasian wears to a party, but give barely any thought to the men and women who travel to space and push the boundaries of human experience.
All of my friends are sad today. I’m not. I’m pissed. I’m pissed because I just watched as the country who managed to send a man to the moon with less computing power than your cell phone, protected by material that you use in party balloons, just gave up on exploration. I feel let down. We’ve let our space program become bumming rides for gas money with our friends.
We should be on the moon again. We should be on Mars by now.
Gonna get my NASA on.
Expect photos and some “real” blog posts for once.
Guess who was selected to attend the NASA Applied Rotary Wing Engineering Helicopter workshop this summer in Connecticut.
