    My daughter was the lead engineer for one of the shuttles. I was lucky enough to get to see a launch up close. Amazing. Have a little lump in my throat today watching this last piggyback.

    We must thank dear leader for killing our iconic space program so he can pay off cronies and give money to failed green companies.

    America takes another hit to its reputation as a result of his failed leadership.

    And with that the world now has 2 countries that can launch a man into space…Russia and China.
    Well, Richard Branson too…but he’s a Brit.

    On that note, if the Russians decide not to ferry US pesons up to the ISS anymore, do they get to claim it under salvage law since the US has abandonned it in place?
