    It's just so sad. Obama says one thing and does the opposite. While still saying he is doing what he first said he would. He is destroying NASA and the USA's ability to move forward. I am all for moving forward with private exploration of space but let's not turn over all government control to other countries. And the NASA admin has to go. One would think I would be acclimated to Obama appointing "yes men" but I'm not. Obama is making me miss Clinton and that is not easy to do.

    No one said it was not. Just the size made the thread a bit unmanageable.

    You simply haven't learned to understand his wisdom correctly.

    Well, that orange one wasn't bad, but aside from what you posted, white will do just fine.

    Re: Spaceflight

    I love this thread - I'm a huge proponent of space exploration. Here's the thing, though - it's one thing for a space ship or space station to be up there; that's what they were designed for. They have airlocks and all that crud to make sure people are safe.

    Our planet, though, is just out there in space, just floating around! I don't think people realize this, but there aren't any walls and doors and stuff protecting our planet! Who's idea was this?!? We need to get our planet back OUT of space until we've had a chance to think this through! ARE YOU WITH ME!!!??!!



    OH PLEASE HELP I found out why Waldo's always hiding he did so many horrible things please let me in he's righ

    The solution is simple, create a Dyson Sphere encompassing both our sun and Earth.

    Jocularity aside, we do have a wall. It's called the atmosphere.

    Al Gore is against it. It would take too many natural resources.

    Not to mention such a feat borders on impossibility.

    In the news:

    "A sophisticated satellite was launched into space today to improve the preeminent path of communications between the president, military commanders and troops on the battlefield, ensuring a survivable line of contact even in hellish scenarios of nuclear warfare.

    "AEHF is a very sophisticated satellite because it is built to provide the highest levels of protection for our nation's most critical users. Encryption, low probability of intercept and detection, jammer resistance and the ability to penetrate the electro-magnetic interference caused by nuclear weapons are essential features when communication can be of the highest priority."



    AEHF was envisioned to keep communications flowing between the military and civilian leadership in any extreme wartime environment, giving the U.S. information superiority.

    Communications relayed through AEHF can include critical support to Special Operations, situational awareness for Army troops, giving last-minute targeting information to en-route Air Force fighters and transmitting Tomahawk missile updates to the Navy.

    The United Kingdom, Canada and the Netherlands are partners in the AEHF program, providing some funding in exchange for a corresponding amount of resources from the satellites. "


    Vivi, your military has gone hi-tech!!
