“We’ve Seen It All,” Says Bush Whitehouse

The Hubble telescope is in trouble, and no help is on the way.  The budget proposed by the Bush administration gives NASA just enough money to build a robot that will guide the telescope to a watery grave in the Pacific Ocean.There isn’t enough money to robotically service Hubble, and officials feel it’s too risky to send astronauts.  Too risky?  That’s their job!  Aren’t astronauts just low-gravity janitors?  Believe me, a space walk won’t be so special when it’s to clean the toilet exhaust on the belly of a passenger shuttle.

    not to get back on track but won’t the hubble slowly creep back into our atmosphere and burn up on reentry? why spend millions to push it? it’s like egging on someone who’s suicidal and standing on a bridge. it’s going to happen, just enjoy the show.

    Awesome. Someone else finally posted about the topic at hand so it’s not as weird. I think, like many of the other man-made satellites going around the earth, that there are too many things orbiting already and is causing a danger to space ships exiting and entering our atmosphere. I SWEAR I read that somewhere, if I’m wrong don’t laugh.

    But anyways- the Hubble is only exposing some of the most important life questions ever in the history of the Universe… But who needs that when you got religion?! Am I right G Dub? We don’t need to know the answer to why we’re a rock floating in the middle of absolute nowhere so long as oil profits are up and your own corporations are happy and that God is smiling down upon you.

    I think you’re right.  It might hit another satellite, or break up and fall on somebody’s house.  That person might be rich or famous.  That would be bad.

    let the boys bruise their cocks in a pissing contest.

    I think Dub’s afraid g-d will drop that sucker right on his ass. we approve the air force to pay some schmucks to research teleportation, but not to fix a science that works?
