  • How is this really different?
    How is this really different? Commercial space? The people who built the previous spacecraft were commercial corporations in that they were not government owned. Am I to believe that NASA is not contracting to have these space craft built? Or perhaps NASA doesn't own them but just pays to use them and launch them? I am trying to figure out how things are really any better?

  • Who can we trust?
    "We've been launching things into space for 50 years," said NASA's Deputy Administrator Lori Garver. "It's time we did trust our industry to be able to lead the way." Given how wasteful, mismanaged and down right criminal our government has been, I find it extremely insulting and arrogant to hear a government official suggest private industry is untrustworthy. It was private industry that engineered and built the rockets that put America in space and sent Americans to the moon AND BACK! The USSR's failed lunar program is the result of citizen's TRUSTING government. Since I agreed to write something positive, I am positive Lori Garver should shut up and get out of private industry's way.

  • Useless NASA
    Useless NASA (cannot even go into space anymore), yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights. They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like "America Deceived II". They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you. They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars. Impeach Obama, support Ron Paul. Last link of "America Deceived II" before it is completely banned: http://www.amazon.com/America-Deceived-II-Possession-interrogation/dp/145025743

  • NASA de-commissioning and defunding
    Ms. Garver,as if on cue as a mouthpiece for the Obama Administration,asserts that the Shuttle Program was scheduled to end(because of Pres. Bush) and that Pres. Obama extended it for two more flights.Ms. Garver fails to include that the Shuttle was designed to be succeeded by The Constellation Program, which had been in construction for ~6 years with billions of research and development already invested. The Constellation Program was cancelled by the Obama Administration. This was our new rocket system designed to take astronauts beyond outer earth orbit. Barack Obama, in a move to fundamentally transform America, removed the mission directive of NASA from space exploration to one of "Muslim Outreach" and instructed the Dir. of NASA that it's new directive would be one of making the Muslim world feel better about it's historical "contributions to math and science." Obama gave vital technology to India, China and Russia and created the brain drain of scientists leaving the U.S. for countries where vital research is taking place. These "new jobs" to which Ms. Garver refers will never replace the tens of thousands of jobs lost in the last 3 years from NASA and the ancillary companies that built the thousands of parts,products, conducted testing, research, etc.Ms. Garver's deliberate omission of The Constellation Program alerts one to the fact that this administration is one big sham.
