Scroll thru all the Shuttle pics and look at the thousands of signatures on the walls; probably from all of those who worked on the project. Some amazing pics.

Just think, not one of the Obamadork’s West Wing Clown Show of Felon/Cretins could even qualify to become a NASA janitor on this thing.

I wouldn’t have hired any of those scum/filth/trash/garbage to work on my Farm, cleaning-up the manure for composting, for the past 21yrs, even with *direct supervision*. Not even if the gov’t paid me 3x their wages. No way, no how.

***Information overload***, to me. Heh. But an amazing flight deck! I had no idea until I saw these shots.

Those seats do not look comfortable.

The cockpit reminds me of my old ‘67 mercury Comet.

Now, they sure don’t. But I don’t know how many Gs that they’re subjected to upon launch, but I’d bet they’re built to keep them alive, rather than comfy.

Reminds me of my '60 Austin Healey "Bugeye" Sprite...

It is the funeral dirge of NASA. Terribly tragic that we have to hitch a ride with the Russians now.

The technology in the photos is 20-30 years old and should be in a museum.

Space should no longer be in the hands of government agencies. Precision manufacturing and computing is so much cheaper now that private enterprise will soon be going into space on a regular basis.

I predict it will become profitable to mine asteroids and other planets within 2 decades. Space tours will become affordable to the upper middle class. With robotics and remote manufacturing/mining, it would not be difficult at all to colonize planets.

Once the benefit to the public exceeds the investment, private enterprise grows that industry at an exponential rate that government can never match. NASA gave us experience and got us ahead before the computing/manufacturing was in place. However, IMO, private enterprise would have caught up to where NASA is today in 5-10 years. Remember, it is only now beginning to become cheap enough to go into space.

There are big plans in the Space industry and I plan to be part of it. We will get there eventually but I’m just hoping Barry the Blower and other leftists don’t delay our progress so I live to see it.

I agree. I just hate to see NASA go down like this, by the corrupt, criminal, racist, hate-America, muzzie hand of ∅bummer&Co.
