First came the “Summer of Recovery”

Now 0bamao brings us the “Fall of UARS”

Kind of a metaphor for the decline of NASA generally.

This was (decommissioned 2005) not a "valuable space asset." It was literally a leftist propaganda machine.

The $750 million mission measured the concentrations and distribution of gases important to ozone depletion, climate change and other atmospheric phenomena.
