They should of used that money and feed some kids.
to all those who fancy a man on the moon, i wonder why they haven't repeated it since then although the technology has advanced in leaps, has any one bothered to know that the international space station (iss) i located well below the van allen radiation belt? no human can survive the radiation in this belt or beyond and that is why no one will ever place any human on the moon or elsewhere!
russians are not planing to sent a man to the moon because during soviet ero they sent a probe to the moon before americans and got all rocks samples and photos they needed
I've been trying to get people interested in a replacement for the Space Shuttle. Maybe we need more people to write letters to NASA to get them moving. There was a program, started by President Ronald Reagan, called the National Aerospace Plane , which would have used air-breathing ramjets and saved the weight of carrying liquid oxygen. But it seems the program was cancelled about a week after the Soviet Union fell , on March 17th, 1991.
...I mean, Russia might be the first nation to put a man on the Moon!
Russia and USA have been working together with the ISS for decades. USA sending up rockets with supplies and men. Only recently did USA stop the transportation. Humiliating? I doubt it. Glad to see Russia may finally reach the moon, something the USA did 40 years ago. Found nothing there worth a continuing exploration. A waste of money. Hope Russia doesn't follow suit. If anyone wants to attack the "world", ya don't need the moon as a launch site. Technology has moved way beyond that. I kinda wonder why the USA has bowed out of the ISS like it has, however.
...if Russia keeps going forward with their space program we might finally have a man on the Moon for the first time!
The unsuccessful Mars mission must be humiliating for the Russians also. Please remember, these two countries share more, than we commoners are allowed to know. Cheers.
These manned Russian space flights with Americans on board must be very humiliting for the United States.
