When NASA = NADA

I’m always pretty fed up with the space program.  There is a lot of good work to do out there, work that could literally change lives.  Hard to do it when you can’t get your equipment to work.

NASA lost an Earth-observation satellite earlier today when the nose cone failed to separate.  Not only is the over $400 million satellite and all the good work it could it have provided lost but it provides a sobering thought about the space program in general.

How reliable are our space faring vehicles if we can’t competently get a simple satellite off the ground with supposedly proven technology?  Thank God there wasn’t an astronaut or six strapped to the dang thing.

It’s all a reminder even simple low earth orbit travel is dangerous and will continue to be dangerous.  As a country we need to be more committed to space and making it safer.  Making it more accessible to private industry should be a major priority also.
