I am completely irate! I know we have unmanned missions but I think america needs that extension. Also I do know that we don't have much to do in space except terraform anyway...

I also think the nations of the world need team up to start terraforming mars ASAP...

It makes sense. The shuttles were clearly starting to show their age. It's time for the next generation of space travel.

Terraforming? You're watching a little too much sci-fi, kid.

What if space doesn't really exist?

What if I'm the only person who actually has free will and everyone else is just a mindless body acting for my benefit?

What if I don't even have free will?

it was time to move on. nasa should start focusing on deep space trips now more than anything.

Did you take the red pill?

I'm actually pretty irate myself, I'm still finding it hard to believe. No more people in space, bah - its a coverup, the government must have some kind of new information about extra-terrestrial intellect.

I got over it like when they told us bro. Go terraform and make a space western with Joss Whedon

I mean, it's no longer us proving science, we know the science to go to space. We can put it in the private sector, now anyone can go to space, not just the space program.

One day I honestly hope to make enough to be able to afford a flight.

Kind of seems like there are better things to spend money on nowadays.

No more people in space



Those guys on the ISS are gonna be pretty pissed that we forgot about them methinks.


We're still gonna hitch rides with the Russians I believe. Either way the Russians are still gonna be sending people up.

I think scientists need to stop trying to learn stuff and start trying to stop the world's end?


Is that a question?

Also, are you talking about the 2012 stuff? I agree, we really need to get on that. I don't want all the world's scientists to wait until the very end to figure out a solution.

Remember that the only reason they stopped the shuttle program is because of Obama deciding that NASA (less that 1% of the budget) needs to get cut so we can spend more on things like military and health care (both combined, easily over 60% of the budget)

However, I do feel that we could benefit from trying to create a new mode of transportation into space. One that is cheaper, faster, and takes less time to set up. With the right engineers and people behind the project, it's very possible that we might have a moon base from which we would launch more space ships, due the the moon's lower gravity, it would be trivial to escape its pull and head to mars. All of that within, optimistically, the next 50 or so years.

It sucks ass only cause NASA won't have the pressure to get the next project going, so it will likely take years before they get a new craft done.

You sir, have made a very interesting point. I wonder how long it will be before we start building spatial housing sub-divisions, and exactly how much it would cost to live in one.

Lots of good answers, some are complete trash though hahah
Although I do realize the terraforming bit was farfetched - I'd just like to at least hear ideas be thrown around.

And about the 2012 thing - that's utter garbage - all that will happen is somekind of planetary alignment that doenst happen very often

See, this is what slipped my mind - In my mind the whole thing was a bust, and there would be no more people in space until new arrangements were made. Pretty ignorant of me huh???

Well for one, the computer on the last space shuttle sent up has less power than an Xbox 360.


Also, they're 40 years old. Their design is more or less obsolete. Their fuel is also pretty pathetic.

The decision to end the Shuttle program was made in 2004, which is a full Presidential term before Obama ever took office.

Yes. It's silly to complain about something when you don't understand what you're complaining about.


I do, however, think that NASA is going about things in the wrong way. They had the right idea (a fleet of space craft) in the beginning, but now they're down to just the "Space Taxi" idea. I would have liked to see a Shuttle-like vehicle that's capable of bringing up large amounts of cargo. But instead of taking off like a rocket and landing like a plane it should be a large plane that is capable of flying into space, and then the ISS. And also have the Space Taxi that can travel between the ISS and the Moon. And on the Moon they could establish a base that could eventually launch missions to Mars.

They had an opportunity to do some really cool stuff that not only dramatically advances science and technology, but also gets the nation excited about space exploration again.

Oh and they also should have had a vehicle ready to launch within a year of the last Shuttle launch to capitalize on the excitement for that program ending. But instead they decided to dick around trying to get more money for a dead program.
