It’s out of this world……
…..For a little while longer.
There seems to be a big push on from the top to revive the ghost of the S.D.I. program, by trying to shoot down the failing satellite.
This begs the question:
Why not just hook up some sort of a low tech, low cost tow cable from the Space Shuttle to this accident looking for a place to happen, and give it an outward bound tug to send it straight into the sun?
Perhaps because Halliburton doesn’t have 80 million dollar tow cables for sale?
Instead, we have the endangering of people on earth with another half ass scheme pushed along by the moron wannabe cowboy master of wrong ideas who for a little while longer can be found in the white house.
State of the art, third world version!
So, what happens if the missile misses, and the bus sized spacecraft explodes when it crashes still more or less intact in a place where the residents don’t hate America or Americans (if there still is such a place after 7+ years of Bush), and kills a crowd of kids?
Crap, it’s not like there are a lot of those friendly kind of places still left to lose!
