Heartbreak in space


It didn't make the news so here it is. Things aren't going so well in space. After shutting down half the solar panels due to a broken rotary joint, one of the remaining solar panels was destroyed during redeployment. There's no way for astronauts to repair the damage and no budget for spare solar panels.

Even if nothing else breaks, the space station can only be 1/2 as functional as intended. When finished, they'll have to power cycle the modules to conserve power and can expect only 1/2 the original science output. From the broken solar panels to the worthless orbit, this $100 billion toy is a true disaster.

Russians knew how to build space stations. Should never have let the united meltdown get involved.

If one does not like where he lives he does have options you know?

Then there would only be 299,999,999 losers instead of 299,999,999 losers and 1 winner

I think that reading much of your blog demonstrates who the loser is...

By the way, there are plenty of opportunities to be a winner... Don't be bitter if your ship has not come in or if you missed, fell off or jumped off of it.

Happy flying.
