Great production values,
actual space,
actual craft,
and actual launches.





Really?
Their bragging about a keynote address about flying through the air
...in .... airplanes.....

/sarcasm
Weather Satellite... woo, woo, I can hardly contain myself.

The Chinese have a cool space program.



This mission is both
Glorious,
and Sacred.

Look at all of the Space Programs.

wikipedia.org / List of Space Programs

Poland has one,
Turkey,
and even Greece.

At those rates,
America should have one in every State of the Union.

What the Hell is going on.

What?
Did I miss something?
Exactly how many humans have launched from Canadian soil?

They have one far far better than a those.

Execpt its military and classified. You think they forgot the whoe SDI thing?


NASA is just a big PR stunt and I wouldnt be surprised if after the moon landings its been used to try and slow down other nations space programs and make things more difficult.

Perhaps The Japanese space channel has superior production values to it's U.S. counterpart ( I don't watch it so don't know ), and JAXA's SELENE probe certainly took the first high resolution photos of the lunar surface showing the 40 year old footprints left by NASA astronauts...

I'm sure you can see where I'm going with that thought.

NASA is certainly subdued in scope and application due to the political budget wrangling of the last decade.

Until JAXA, Roscosmos, China's National Space Administration or the Agence Spatiale Canadienne (did you really include the Canadians?) manage something like put a human on Mars or get a probe under the ice of Europa NASA still have the legacy that sets the bar and are a long way from being p'wned by anyone.

I know your title implied the media programming but you kinda blurred the lines in your secondary,tertiary,quaternary,quinary,senary and septenary posts ( you could have just edited the first to include the rest you know?)

Of the 4 criteria listed on the
wikipedia Space Programs page
    Astronauts
    Operates satellites
    Sounding Rockets Capable
    Recoverable Biological Capable

Canada gets a yes on 3 out of 4

    ■ Astronauts
    ■ Operates satellites
    ■ Sounding Rockets Capable
    Recoverable Biological Capable



If they haven't launched a human
from their own soil, by now,
it is by choice.

Besides, why be so incredulous?
Their program is on the come,
unlike the Americans.

So, we're resting on our Laurels,
and looking down our noses?

That is not, what I would call, a plan.

As a nation, yes.

It's not like NASA doesn't have idea's but it takes a huge long term commitment from the people and a lot of money for funding.

These are trying times and everyone has different priorities for the federal budget. If the lack of a substantial new goal for the U.S. space program is a concern be sure to write your congressman.


Personally, I believe that nationalism has to be put aside for the common goal if humanity ever hopes to get beyond low earth orbit on a permanent basis.

Private enterprise is a possibility as well if an ambitious space endeavor could be made profitable ( such as mining precious minerals from asteroids or establishing eco tourism on Mars. )

Space Travel
The one growth industry that America used to have.
The one that we were the leaders in.
The one that used to be the hope for the future,
was destroyed with a simple smart Alec comment.
"We have enough problems here on earth."


/sarcasm
Yeah right.
/end sarcasm



And now that we have abandoned our own futures to fix things quote here-on-earth end quote,
I'm advised that we are in "trying times" and I should "write" my "Congressman".

My freakin Congressman...




The dream of space was suppressed because of fear.

The _method_ of suppressing the dream was a meme
that first surfaced in my area in the late 70's early 80's
"Space!? We have enough problems here on Earth."

It was useful to the average six-pack or grocery-shopper when they found themselves in a conversation above their education level.

Also, once on the defensive, most space fanatics
were hard pressed to explain the safety issues,
how to effect a rescue, and how unpleasant life in zero G is.

I've been looking into this since the 70's
when I first became a conspiracy theorist
over the shuttle redesign in committee
where they divided it into two parts so it could be
in Florida AND Louisiana.

(the original was twice as big and all the fuel was in the wings,
no external tank to shed a piece of ice and cause catastrophic loss of life later
(but politicians know best don't they))

As far as I know, NASA TV broadcasts its launches, many of them live. They also have a few hours a day devoted to live feeds from the space station. They will be covering a spacewalk live from the ISS on Thursday.

We ( canucks) have the program, we'd just miss the bacon too much, lol.
But at least we have one.
