From The Orlando Sentinel: That has prompted NASA to advertise a long list of KSC facilities and equipment as available for use, lease or, in some cases, outright purchase by the right business. Among them: Launch Pad 39A, where shuttles were launched; space in the Vehicle Assembly Building, the iconic 526-foot-tall structure first used to assemble Saturn V-Apollo rockets; the Orbiter Processing Facilities, essentially huge garages where the shuttles were maintained; Hangar N and its high-tech test equipment; the launch-control center; and various other buildings and chunks of undeveloped property. A lot of the stuff needs to be transferred by the end of 2013, when federal maintenance money will run out. When it does, machinery will start to rust, and buildings will deteriorate in the harsh coastal-marsh environment of Cape Canaveral.

Here we are seeing American's proud history just disappear before our eyes. It's a shame.

Remember, NASA's mission now is to just makes Muslims feel good about themselves.

Somehow, surrendering space to China must do this.

He who weaponizes space first wins.

And it won't be the USA.

For the record, I'm not totally against privatizing much of NASA. I beleive the private sector can do better and cheaper if given the opportunity.

But NASA's budget was around 20 billion per year (I think). That's a.drop in the bucket compared to EBT and welfare costs. At least we got to see something for our money. What are we getting in return for welfare? More babies. More welfare

The Bolshevik stated prior to the morons voting him in the 1st time that he wouldn't weaponize space.

The Future of NASA? Once Again, Obama Says Nothing
http://tierneylab.blogs.nytimes.com/2009...a-says-nothing/

Instead, the agency is doing everything but. It’s been drifting, delaying and courting upstart aerospace companies to build what’s already been built, ignoring the days when America was clearly No. 1.
