    It`s a shame NASA is no longer going to be sending manned missions because of Obama killing the Orion project.

    NASA`s launches have been a symbol of the USA`s leadership to the world.

    Now that the shuttles are getting retired, I wonder if I could buy one.

    Convert it into a motor home or something.

    Not for me! This mighty 24" screen hungers for more pixels.

    Oh and crackr, if you are looking for symbols of US leadership look elsewhere. Plenty of other countries have space programs, not to mention private space programs.

    madest: We`ve been `broke` before, It never ceased NASA`s space program. I thought Obama was all about creating or keeping jobs, according to the liberal spin. Didn`t he sign the biggest government spending bill in our lifetime just over a year ago ?

    NASA`s budget is tiny in comparison.

    CJ, You can find reasons to criticize. Doesn`t matter what Obama does. If he kept the program you`d complain of the waste of money. STFU about Obama. You have no credibility because your guys have proven themselves to be disastrous for the country.

    Obama took it all away. So sad.

    Also, Madest. If we can afford 200 billion dollars on green energy research, we can afford 20 billion dollars to conduct space missions. That`s what we saved by grounding the space program.

    Mere peanuts.

    Yeah, space exploration is expensive. But research pays off.
    Not always how we experct, and sometimes you think it has no value
    when suddenly it does. But space sciencesa have given us new medicines
    and medical techniques. Better plastics, solid state electronics, etc etc

    look at your cell phone... the profitable end of space technology

    Crakrjak..."We`ve been `broke` before"

    I`m pretty sure the US has been broke since WW1 to the tune of 10B or more.

    madest: It was `your guys` that have doubled the national debt in the last two years there bud, and a lot of it has gone to waste for crap we don`t need. NASA`s budget is a drop in the bucket compared to the pay offs Obama gave to his friends, associates, and the banks/brokerages/insurance companies that helped fund his campaign.

    Yay! Another awesome post turned stupid by politicizing in the comments. Exactly how does arguing the past rights or wrongs make anyone`s day any better? What`s done is done, come to peace with it, move on, and enjoy the really great photo presented here.

    I live about 20 miles from the space center, and tbh, this town isn`t great, there isn`t much to do, and it gets boring at times. But, it will definitly suck once the space program is done, the tourists pretty much paid for a good amount of what this town has through coming to view a shuttle or rocket launch.

    The space program isn`t done. They still have funding for rocket launches, and I`m sure they will occasionally throw a person or two in there.

    Weird, looks to me like this is a bit AFTER liftoff not AT liftoff.

    Anywho, I love this stuff. Watched the final takeoff and subsequent landing of Discovery and it was a little sad. It`s amazing to think about what these people put themselves through, though.

    what`s really nuts is when you see this in person, at night, all of a sudden it`s daytime, quite literally, you`d think the sun just rose. quite breathtaking, shame people won`t be able to experience this again, at least not anytime soon.
