"One step for man..."
« on: September 19, 2005, 08:50:23 PM »
One redundant leap for mankind...

"NASA Administrator Michael Griffin rolled out NASA's plan for the future Monday, including new details about the spaceship intended to replace the shuttle and a timeline for returning astronauts to the moon in 2018."

2018?  Shit if you gave me some paperclips and some rubberbands, I could get there in 2015...

Yeah, my dad worked for the GOV for 30 years, and he accomplished about as much, which is to say, getting paid for 30 years.

And now that he's retired, your taxes go to pay him for officially doing nothing, which is slightly more useful than NASA since the 1960's. =)

I so need to get that job.  I'm awesome at doing nothing.  :troll:

Anyway, it certainly isn't the most impressive event of the year, or even the day, but it might pay off in the long run.  Let's not forget NASA's space program has produced such wonders as freeze dried food and the electric screw driver.

You forgot about the part where they attempt to resurect dead bodies using technology from a parallel dimension and inadvertently create demonic zombie cyborgs, who are then torn to pieces by none other than a WWE wrestler and the California Governor.

Shit, my taxes have done worse.  I've paid more people WITH government jobs to do nothing with my taxes than I care to count...  :schierke:

I can think of nothing more practical than a colony on the moon. The cost to send food and water for anyone living there is incredibly low, the moon dust is super healthy to breathe in, there's shitloads of oxygen, etc.

For less than $100,000 NASA could go to California and record a black and white faux landing...

That's what they're going to do, the rest of the money is to pay them hookers and booze everyday until 2018.

But they already did that...
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Hehe. Lots of appreciation for those who kept the ISS manned and running when the shit hit the fan - err, in this case the fuel tank i guess. ^_^;

Let's hope NASA does it for real this time. Space tourists paying upward of 10 mil for a vacation at the Ptolemaeus Crater Motel will be quite put out in the event of discovering their having been shipped off to some kind of low-gravity container in the middle of Arizona. Then again, it just might be cheaper to ship them off to the moon in the first place?
