  1. @CashCreep indeed. too bad we don't have the drive that they used to have in times past. in the 60s, kennedy said he was making landing a man on the moon by the end of the decade a matter of national importance and it was done. additionally, the money was provided to actually make that vision a reality. with the current round of regressive political rhetoric in washington, i don't see that coming even near happening.

  2. @CashCreep I find this comment rather amusing, maybe because it has so many thumbs up. If you look at the astronaut corps, you'll find that half of them are in the military… πŸ˜‰
