stuff that’s hard to do (and easy to go wrong)

Well that sucked,

and are in good condition.
Prob’ly needed a change of flight suit, though

    I was wondering how often had launches been aborted with the astronauts not being killed. I checked and it has happened in Russia several times. We can that the curtain of secrecy that kept the information from us. In any event, I am glad that the Astronaut and the Cosmonaut both survived without any serious consequence.

    We are playing catch up because Obama stopped the NASA manned spacecraft initiative so they could promote unity with the musllim world. Shutting down the Shuttle program without a suitable on shore replacement was an irresponsible act by obama.

    It takes a long time to create a launch system and a vehicle for manned travel. You look at Spacex and they are really close to doing that but this is after years of development.

    Other companies are doing the same but the record of Spacex re-using boosters is really impressive and will reduce overall costs immensely.
