    Oh yeah, here we go, back to March 31:

    Dennis Tito’s ‘Spaceship to Everywhere’: a Dead-end for NASA
    http://astromaven.********.com/2014/...verywhere.html

    This is how NASA wants to spend your NASA dollars:

    This is how Congress wants to spend your NASA dollars:

    House Appropriations Subcommittee Approves $17.9 Billion Budget for NASA
    http://www.parabolicarc.com/2014/05/01/52272/
    Over $3 billion of the annual space exploration budget is for the development of Orion + SLS.

    This is what can happen when sound business practices are employed in the development of self-sustaining space transportation enterprises, instead of Congress's too-many-cook, pay-as-you-go, model-morphing, swiss-army-knife, my-way-or-the-highway plan:

    I don't have the time or patience to read 4 pages of re-posts.
    NASA has gone through 12+ years of political murder.
    The politicians have "sold" NASA to fill their pockets and it is nowhere what it used to be.
    Can you believe NASA is "renting" rides to the ISS aboard "my friend Putin’s" rockets?
    This is total BS!
    IMHO the director is a political crony who wanted "to reach out to the Muslim community" and have more diversity.
    Give me a freaking break!
    NASA is only a mirror of our society now. Science is secondary.
    Off my soapbox...
    Life is too short, Behappy!
