    I got into computers and networking because of my love for NASA though.

    Pretty happy with my life as it is all things considered.
    Cool when is band practice

    Chinese rover landed on the moon

    China watched this month as the nation's first lunar rover rolled across the moon's surface.
    It was a moment of national pride when images of the six-wheel rover, dubbed Jade Rabbit, were transmitted live back to Earth, showing the red and gold Chinese flag on the moon for the first time.
    "Now as Jade Rabbit has made its touchdown on the moon surface," the state-run Xinhua news agency said, "the whole world again marvels at China's remarkable space capabilities."

    I found this great article that breaks down rocket engines and how they work in a layman's language.

    Good read.

    China sent a man into space but they don't have the adapter to dock, at least that we know of and they aren't going to tell us that they have sent men up until afterwards.

    NASA is outsourcing orbital manned flights to private contractors like SpaceX to focus on deep space missions via the new SLS (Space Launch System) that uses the Orion craft for manned deep space missions yet to be determined. Sounds like they will send it to an Asteroid rendezvous or a manned mission to Mars. They have the gantry built, they repuroposed the Shuttles old engines and are testing the tanks and have a mock up of the capsule ready. The 1st test launch of the Orion Stack is set for 2014! The 1st manned mission may not be until 2017 or later. I fear later.

    NASA wants to leave the smaller jobs to private enterprise and do the other harder things because private company's would be less likely to pull them off.

    Thank you sir! Amazing how far our countries have come in just over 20 years.

    This will very likely be a dumb question, but here goes. How do astronauts now enter and exit space with the space shuttle program being shut down? Are we being transported by another country? I could look this up, but figured I'd keep the topic going and give Broncosteven a chance to throw down some knowledge.

    The station’s cooling system broke down last week and the crew, which also includes three Russian and one Japanese astronaut, had to shut off non-vital equipment and scientific experiments.

    Damn right! America!

    Americans to fellow astronauts. "We got this. Just sit there with your vodka and sushi while America does all the work."
