On this day 40 years ago... Houston we have a problem

Recommended Posts


Still one of my favorites reads of all time. I mean what everyone did to bring that capsule home was amazing.

For a budget of about $20bn/yr, we could have gone back there in 10 years. Instead, we needed to give $80bn to AIG and billions more to stupid corporations for literally NO return. NASA will get $18bn/yr and lose the ability to send humans into space, instead holding a ticket to get on the Hogwarts Express from Pad 9 3/4 to the ISS whenever one of these commercial companies actually gets a rocket up, let alone a capsule to carry people.

It's disgusting.

Its kinda bad that space exploration has been on a stand still since then. I guess without any effective means of transportation we will be stuck in our little corner of the solar system and galaxy.
