I'de agree with FREDT that it wouldn't suprise me if this was staged in order to let it sink more into people's mind, that it's just too old and
broken down to risk lives and more money to fix.
I personally think this is good. I seem to be the only person in this forum that thinks it has done good but ALL good things come to an end.
The next gen scopes will be no doubt better.
Instead of us focusing on galaxies and what not that are so far away, I wish we would spend that money on something to get us into space. I
personally believe scram-jets can do it. Nasa had a succesfull X-43 go Mach 7 and latter this fall they will send there 3rd and final X-43 to go Mach
10. They cancelled there X-43C which would of being bigger and better, why did they cancell something so important to we can go jump around on the
I don't think that we should start building permanent bases anywhere in our solar system until we have a much cheaper way of getting off our own
So with the X-43 cancelled i'm now pinning my hopes for cheap access to space on The Space Elevator. I've read alot about that and the only thing
that seems to be holding them back is the paper thin 3 foot wide cable, but nano tech is taking big strides so that should only be a couple of years
off, I Hope.
