Happy Moon Landing Day!


Just about 42 years ago, man first set foot on the moon. A pair of intrepid astronauts by the names of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their lunar module, named the Eagle, and by doing so, took a giant leap forward for all mankind.

Thank you, gentlemen, and godspeed.

Today is also the day the last Space Shuttle mission touched down...

Sadly the Constellation program which was supposed to take us BACK to the moon was canceled in 2010. Many of the engineers I work with were working on the program when it was canceled. One of them wanted to be an astronaut after seeing the Apollo Moon Landing. He later learned that he couldn't because of his need of glasses. As a kid he wrote a letter to the then head of NASA with very detailed designs of incorporating lenses into the helmets, and got a letter back from one of the original Apollo astronauts. Buzz Aldrin said in his letter that the kid should pursue a career as one of the engineers that sent him into space because they were the real heroes. He was the senior lead engineer on the project for the company I'm working at, and said it nearly crushed him to hear it was canceled.

Why let a little thing like evidence get in the way of a belief?

I hope we can get ourselves back into space again. I never once thought that I would see the end of the space program in the US, and now I am.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

To acknowledge the ramblings of conspiracy nuts only gives them undue credence and helps them elevate their baseless claims. I take it as a rare mark of intelligence by the community, either that or the more likely scenario that no one cares.

The US space program is in no way over. We are just out of the outdated Space Shuttle program. Michael E Fossum and Ronald J. Garan, Jr are two Americans in space as we incorrectly state the U.S. space program dead.

@ mim: It's as dead as it's ever been.

Until I see the successor to the Space Shuttle I'm calling this thing dead... or in a zombie-like state.

Just got back from dinner in Clear Lake with friends that work for NASA and after listening to them talk, I'm just a little optimistic.
