Im Sorry...So the US is going to send another little tin can out to space, with a computer brain no better than a modern phone with its 3 year mission
to land on a Jupiter moon, drill a hole then run out of power?
Where are we? ...1973?
Rocket technology is ancient human technology.
What have human scientists been doing for the past 60 years?
What have the 100s of people, who daily fly into Area 51 and disappear into hangers, been doing for the past 40 years?
Are they making toys out of popsickle sticks and gum?
What about the Lockheed boss telling us we can take ET home, but we cant even fly a tin can to Jupiter in less than 2 years?
Are we still totally stupid (yes obviously).
WW3, Kill them all, Dont trust anyone, More War etc etc.
What the hell is wrong with people.
Its about time the people of the Earth took the blinkers off, pulled their fingers out their a**, and worked together.
All the scientists/technicians/engineers etc of the Earth, could easily build a fleet of intra solar space vehicles, using solar power, nuclear
batteries (we have them), advance non chemical propulsion, loosely based on a saucer/triangle/spherical shape, that can traverse, space, atmospheres
and liquid water.
All can be done with our technology we have right now, not to mention the secret stuff we know is out there (but all military of course, a more
efficient way to kill and control people)
We could even use hybrid tech, chemical propulsion and aeronautics for atmospheres, exotic for space.
Amalgamate all space agencies World wide, have a massive thinktank, and build a fleet of vessels to explore for the knowledge of humanity and
Earth...not one crappy tin can on a huge useless rocket...
Yes we can..... do it.
