How humiliating... and that’s just what Obama wants to see happen to America - see it humiliated.

Do “regional” powers have to hitch rides to a space station?

God speed to all on board! Nice liftoff too.

It is embarrassing, as an American, that we need to pay someone else to deliver our astronauts. Hopefully we will get back on track as a nation of space-faring people.

Did he say “six hour trip to the space station”? Six hours is pretty quick.

You got that right.

America needs to rebuild, bring back American jobs, and rejoin the rest of the world.

But we need to do that as PRODUCERS.

Said it’s a six hour flight to the ISS. Our shuttles used to take 2 or 3 days, iirc.

Good first stage separation

Interesting that we don’t see any g-force reaction from the crew. They seem to be able to reach up and perform normally.

Agree 1000%.

Change tax laws, streamline/burn the mountains of reg’s, renegotiate trade treaties etc. There will tons of work required to revive the patient.

BTW, love the cosmonauts low tech pointy stick for control input :)

They’ve got a loose leaf notebook, I just saw the Cosmonaut count out a couple pages, and flip to the next place he had marked.

:D

Hello America? These guys are flying us to the shuttle?

We’re stuck? I am all for the Russians, but darn we really are not doing things right.

Get with it. Soon. Please.

Two insults in one minute: I had to watch a commercial for Common Core before the NASA TV feed started, and then I had to watch a Russian take an American into space, because we no longer can take ourselves. It would be like the Pilgrims having to pay the Spanish Armada to take them to Plymouth Rock.

Provident timing for the Russians. Obama/Kerry are saying Russia is a second rate power which took Crimea because of weakness and now we are treated to a picture of the Russians taking one of our astronauts to the ISS and we have to pay them $71 million for the ride.

But the important question is whether or not the Moslems feel good about themselves. You know, they taught us how to count. Because no one would have figured that out.

And it’s only costing us 70 million per trip!

The Muslim world has made two contributions to our lives—the zero and Zero.
