With all this advanced technology why is Nasa still using the prehistoric space shuttle?

It makes me think after so many advances in nano technology and back engineering from
crashed ufos, why is Nasa still using that pre historic shuttle?

Don't tell me that's the best they can do. With the technology they have behind locked doors, they should be able to teleport into space. There are even Fighter jets in production that can hover and turn on a dime.

Why doesn't nasa atleast try to make a better space ship?
The space shuttle is embarrasing to look at

You answered the question already.

nano-technology!

Right now there are thousands of microscopic shuttles flying about in space turning on dimes and hovering.

ive been pondering the same thing , if all money goes to launching the shuttle then where do they get the rest of the funding ?

Could be a few reasons. Im guessing its partly to do with the cost. I believe they do have something planned to replace the shuttle but probably wont be ready to go for a few years yet. The shuttle in the mean time, works and gets the job done.


Also, who knows what else they have now that we wont see for another 20 years like when the SR-71 was out and about in the public eye, IMO it was to divert people attention away from the other projects they were working on and testing.

one answer: black ops technology

we aren't allowed access to it. nasa tech is 50 years more advanced than they want to admit.

NASA is already retiring the space shuttles as they say there history.NASA started down an unrealistic path they see that now and are correcting decades long mistake. Original idea was to build a launch platform in earths orbit and shuttle people back and forth from there allowing us to explore the solar system. The concept was good but not practical so now were going back to rockets.Had we continued along this line who knows where we would be right now.Most likely would have colonized the moon by now but mistakes happen.

one can agrue that the wrong approach to space flight was by building with wood, aluminium, and mylar and then 2 moon flights later discover that theres something called space radiation.

I would have asumed that the first task in question would have been to get materials into space and building a ship there or permanet station.

my 2 cents

They're going to contract it out.

Businesses can do it cheaper and better than the government. (big surprise)

THAT will bring the boom to the space industry.

Who knows..it is very strange though.No doubt the military are leaps ahead of them.Nasa is great in some ways but in others you can tell they are nowhere near as advanced as they should be in 2009.We have to remember they have to work with a pittance compared to the military though.They work with around 18 billion a year while the pentagon can just lose 2 trillion in a few years and no one bats an eyelid.

A better way to get into space. This is the answer being sought. The costs and limitations of getting from here to there.

Artificial Intel., self guiding, inquisitive technology. If aliens are visiting us they will not, more than likely, show up in person. They would show up by proxy.

Machines can and will be the conquerors of space. No food, water or air needed. Untold time in the cold, loneliness of nothingness.

Do you remember "space 1999"series?
We must be 10 years ahead of that technology.
The thing is that in the series there was no embargo by nasa or military because the cameras were hidden inside the moon base and they thought we didn't see them

Oh they are using different techs, you can be sure of that. The Space Shuttle fleet is for keeping up appearances. There are at least 2 different realities...the one you, me and everyone here sees. The other reality is the space behind the curtains. On our side of the curtain the Concord fleet was dismantled. On the other side it was advanced to the next stages. The best kept secrets are in front of our very eyes --in plain sight! It's just up to us to open our eyes and see things for what they are.

Some are starting to open those eye balls now with this health care illusion. The feeling is indescribable when the creator of a ride at an amusement park won't even ride his own ride. But the majority still pay don't they?

hey it makes sense when they use a shuttle built out of Saturn car parts.

Anybody else think the shuttle is an eyesore?
