(Islam is an ideology. It is NOT a religion.)
Acknowledging the starkly different outcomes, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri O. Rogozin, who oversees Russias military industry, suggested in a Twitter post that the national space agency, Roscosmos, was struggling because of aging leadership. As long as the youngest Roscosmos director is 62, we can only dream of Mars rovers, Mr. Rogozin said.
As a sixty three year old, I resemble that inclination. And, as a sixty three year old, I would hope that the engineering staff was a lot younger. Are they? Or maybe it's nothing to do with age, but rather with institutional vitality based on freedom of thought and action, which is absolutely necessary for the motivation, and even the ability, to succeed.

Speaking of 'Boosters'.....
I heard from a 'good source' that Vlad Putin has 'contributed' about $1 Million Dollars to Obama's reelection campaign. And not though some PAC, but directly 'to Obama'!
Obama HAS TO ANSWER these serious charges and PROVE that Putin did NOT 'contribute'!
I bet he CAN'T!!

A former classmate of mine worked in the Office of Soviet Analysis at the CIA for many years during the Cold War. Back in the 80s I asked him if, given what he knew about the Soviet nuclear threat, he had trouble sleeping at night. He replied matter-of-factly that, no, he slept well in part because he didn't think that many of their ICBMs would make it off the launch pad and most of those which did would land harmlessly elsewhere.

There wouldn’t be a Russian space program any longer if it weren’t for the Demwits in Congress, who crapped all over Reagan’s Space Station Freedom idea.
Thanks neverdem and gleeaikin.
