Whyd eos nasa need this supercomputer? i was a fan of NASA, up till the late 90's, when it seemed they were launching staleittes, commerical and
communications msotly, ALL the stupid damn time. growing up in the 80;s n ealry 90;s i wa so into astronomy, and looking at things NASA had sent and
never done before, to the planets...the Voyager missions, galileo, cassini, mariner missions, viking, Pioneer missions, ulysses...it goes on and
on..those were the days, oh and Magellan to venus. those were things too look forward too, exploring a new world, mapping it out. now thats its all
been done, its still fun to return time to time, take pictures, see how temepratures n weather have changed or not, even maybe plan a robot missiion
to surface of mercury! see how the sun zips across the sky, or to venus, prividng it dosnt melt* they dont have bright minds like that anymore...
now its computers, a retired backhorse, the shuttle, and satellites to look for gamma rays, how old the universe is, things like that. their sending
a satellite to pLuto, 2015 i think? New horizons. to do a flyby* 4 1/2 billion miles, and a decade, t simply do a flyby* thats an effin waist of time
n money. they could at least taken that $800 million and invested it into orbiting a bit around pluto, to study it, isntead of darting by and
basically throwing metal and precious metlas were not ever gunna get back otno this planet, out into deep space after that.
NASA has really lost their creativity and edge. even the skylab missions for its day were fun and ahead of their time!@
