    I can still picture Homer Simpson eating his chips in space. That was awesome.

      I remember the Family Guy episode here Peter went on the space shuttle and said rubbing one out in space was awesome, but after a while it was like living in a now globe.

    • BlueLizzardGame

      I don't think this post can be taken seriously. The pictures of the ladies did not belong in a post like this.

        I think Darth Vader meant to post his comment here

    Cool post, thanks!

  • IrishMan

    Too true. I get a tear in my eye when I hear Neil deGrasse Tyson speaking about exploration and the time for humanity is now. Yet it`s also at risk for all the cut backs.

    Nice post, forget the haters.

    • PiratesFan

      The shuttle program is quite possibly the coolest thing man has ever done.

  • BGum

    As far as your rant goes … AMEN, BRUDDA! I've been watching the space program since Alan Shepherd made his suborbital flight when I was in grade school. People don't seem to realize all the things we have that are a result of the space program. This is American ingenuity, invention and courage at its finest! Here's to those explorers, past and present, who have given us so much, even to the ultimate sacrifice, for the betterment of us all.

    (… I'll get off my cheesy soapbox now, too …)

      i too wanted to be an astronaut, and even spent one summer at space camp, and IT WAS FREAKING AWESOME!

    An information for the american taxpayers, the air conditioning of the military housing and tents in Irag and afghanistan costed more than NASA's entire budget.

      Go serve your country and let's see if you're still complaining on the cost of AC and heat.

      • A BiPolar Guy

        I don't think he was complaining, but rather pointing out that nasa is really a tiny part of the budget, qnd yet it is always an easy target for cuts. We can afford space, we just choose not to.

      • cacodaemon

        Boohoo, its hot in the desert. NASA has done more to enrich the lives of people the world round. Teddy Roosevelt didn't have air conditioning. Neither do a great majority of those our military is "protecting." Let's be realistic here, our country spends far too little on scientific endeavors (oh wow, no pun intended at all) and too much on military spending.

    #44 What size balls does it take to do a space walk? Damn.
    #51 That's just insane.
    I've never been a fan of space exploration but I must say these pics really bring it home. Nicely done.

  • Yak Surfer

    Great post. I went to school in Daytona in the early/mid 80s and saw most of the shuttle launches up close (even Challenger) and even met Crippen & Young (the first flight crew) so the space program is dear to my heart. Hope we get back in the lead soon and not have to pay the Russians $50 mill + per ride. Go NASA!!

  • Tiber_Septim

    Great post! The program has always brought dreams to people and it should be brought back

  • Motofiremedic

    Great post!! MOAR #55!!!!!

  • sadwithyou

    Go space exploration go! Let's figure out a better energy source and the money and get things explored already. We have to keep moving, feels like we're stagnant a little.

  • annoyed

    I'd like to thank Obama and the Democratic Party for doing their best to destroy NASA and as many American dreams as they can.

    • 5eagles

      They are really good at that. I'm sick of our leaders (read: Obama, Reid and Pelosi) apologizing for America about things that we shouldn't be apologize for. America doesn't follow, we lead. Period.

    • Runner

      The decision to shut down the Shuttle program was made in 2004 during the Bush Administration while Obama was a State Senator in Illinois. I don't think he got any say in the decision.

  • Scorp1970

    Great Pictures! The Shuttle program employed 275,000 people within NASA and all the contractors supporting the program. I hope we can find away to get those great Americans back onto the next mission!
