NASA seems confident for a launch tonight at abut 22:36GMT!!! After all the recent events surrounding the shuttle like the lovesick astronauts getting hell bent on winning over the love of other astronauts! That was definitely a bit a public eye opener surely? I always thought these types of people picked for such important jobs were screened, profiled, poked and prodded in all manner of ways (not just poked and prodded by each other! haha!) to ensure their suitability?
Anyway, that’s not to mention all the apparent incidents that have actually been blamed on active sabotage! Apparently the ‘non essential” computer that was damaged (how can anything on the Shuttle be considered ‘non-essential’ anyway?) was damaged on purpose by agencies unknown! Then there was the main cabin oxygen leak announced last week … I don’t know about you, but i’d be feeling pretty nervous about getting in that Shuttle. Considering how many people believe that it should have been replaced decades ago maybe this is a public damning of the whole job lot in order to gain public support for spending a shit load on a replacement? Then again the private sector space programs seem to coming on in leaps and bounds so maybe they are jus giving up the ghost?
