More NASA drama July 27, 2007

Sabotage and drunk astronauts.

A computer scheduled for delivery to the international money pit space station was found with wiring that was deliberately cut.  No information on who or why.

And a report by Aviation Week & Space Technology that released findings from an internal investigation that flight surgeons stated astronauts were too impaired to go to launch, but doesn’t say who or when.

A panel reviewing astronaut health issues in the wake of the Lisa Nowak arrest has found that on at least two occasions astronauts were allowed to fly after flight surgeons and other astronauts warned they were so intoxicated that they posed a flight-safety risk.

So I’m thinking, this will be a, what do they call it, a bad week for NASA.

What has the ISS produced that benefits Joe Citizen?? The race to the Moon gave us all kinds of goodies that we use everyday. But after Apollo shut down, the space program just became a place to piss away money.

It’s time to shut down the shuttle, let whoever wants to have the ISS, and get started on a REAL space exploration program. Get the CEV (Crew Exploration Vehicle) off of the drawing board and on the launch pad. Get our ass to the Moon and then Mars and onward.

It’s time to quit splashing around in the shallow end and head for deeper water. Maybe then we can start seeing a return on the trillions of dollars we have sunk into the space program.
