Neil Armstrong renews attack on Obama space vision

Lorum Ipsum

This is why a former astronaut should run for president

The start of the "long downhill slide to mediocrity" was Skylab. Or rather the utter failure to maximise the potential that project had. Oh no, it was far more important to send the last remaining Apollo CM on a pointless Soviet-US handshake in space. The only person that benefited from that was Nixon.

The US can afford it. Of course they can. If they wanted to. Cutting the defence budget by just ONE F22 would probably fund NASA for a year.

I think it's great that Neil Armstrong is speaking out on this, more astronauts - retired and active - should too. It's just a pity it's falling on deaf ears.

Retro Hamburger phone idea

A hamburger phone also appears in the 80's movie "Dragnet" with Hanks and Dan Aykroyd...so it's not *that* new...

Case of retro ideas coming back into fashion maybe...
