This has been repeated in Houston & California - and with tens of thousands more whose businesses that depended on the Space Industry went belly up - at least 100,000 jobs disappeared...and ‘buma directed the head of NASA to redirect our Space Program money to Muslim countries- for THEIR advancement in the space Industry - which means what?
Along with our money, goes our technology? HELLO? Anybody give a rat’s rump?
