we need space, space is only thing going to save us. only thing we got to expand life. the world is in decay , oil prices get geting out of hand. and yet you say its a waste to send up satellites, with out them allmost 1/2 of USA traffic would not know how to drive without gps (omg whats this folded up paper a map ??). I think if it cost 2 times that its still worth it to try till we get it right(i know 2 failed). never know mission to mars could be right on(the movie) . we dont know, we just dont know. i know that is a not the case but you get the point. We dont know whats out thare.

i'm all for learning about the vast space of our universe, but i'm also all for saving the millions of starving people in our own soil and for the entire poor people living on this earth. do they not realize how much 200 million dollar is? thats enough to feed every poor people on earth

Sure. Look at the nice toys we have now. Nuclear weapons, for instance.

Who cares if it'll bring us demise, so long as it's temporary advancement cool.gif.

Its not a total loss.. yes, the equipment and hardware are gone but all of the ideas and breakthroughs that took place during the intense r&d are what costs the most money and what provide the benefits. the actual observations after the fact take a back seat since this can be retried quickly and much less money.

THe reason it hard failed is typical, you can't test this rocked with x payload and test test test until you get that problem taken care of - there are just not enough launch vehicles to do that. so the other posts are correct, this is a wakeup call to the people in charge of that nose.

And the people who said the poor need to eat first do not understand that these dollars do not translate so easliy into food missions. If they did, the people who go fed would then just eat one meal and continue on the same path. at least maybe this launch can inspire young people.

They learn from mistakes more than they learn from the successful attempts. This is science, if you want to become an actor and mentor to the word then the rest is trivial.

to think, just 1 million of that 700 million would set me up for life.

I feel dead inside.
