Russian Rockets

Email Print

I have heard several news reports about how the US is now dependent upon Russia to launch rockets to the International Space Station since our Space Shuttle fleet has been retired. The more important question, of course, is why are US taxpayers being forced to fund trips into space in the first place? I remember when Tea Party people were protesting job cuts at the Kennedy Space Center while at the same time complaining about government spending by Obama and the Democrats. The space program should be 100% private or it shouldn’t exist. See my “Not Even the Sky Is the Limit.”
