sarychev-volcano-eruption-cloudThe ultimate photography experience would be the opportunity to take the photograph of an erupting volcano from space!

“…Astronaut photograph ISS020-E-9048 was acquired on June 12, 2009, with a Nikon D2XS digital camera fitted with a 400 mm lens, and is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations experiment and Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, Johnson Space Center. The image was taken by the Expedition 20 crew. The image in this article has been cropped and enhanced to improve contrast. Lens artifacts have been removed. The International Space Station Program supports the laboratory to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. Caption by M. Justin Wilkinson, NASA-JSC….”

Guess what?

Newt is looking extremely presidential! (That’s my mother talking. Of course it could be the Vicodin and a few other pain killers. She fell and broke her left elbow this morning). Of course I agree with her!

I just have the re-occuring fantasy of Newt as POTUS, a GOP House and Senate, appointing Mark Levin to the SCOTUS.

We have a little problem.

With apologies to Thomas Paine, these are times that try a rational individual’s patience!

Conservatives are out of their minds.

Newt Gingrich is evil and must be destroyed.

He is no longer pure.

Obama Screwing NASA

Obama Screwing NASA
October 17, 2009

Once again the Dems are in the process of screwing NASA. They have a bad habit of doing this. Right now we’re being told it costs way too much money, etc. but they are willing to throw cash for klunkers to the wind, etc. We’re dealing with a bunch of liberals who don’t give a rip about our actual future, only their own power.

Douglas MacKinnon penned an Op Ed for the Washington Examiner:

“…Enjoy the last few flights of our Space Shuttle fleet. After it’s mothballed late next year, our nation, to the collective shame of our politicians, will have no U.S. capability to get our astronauts into space for quite possibly a decade or more to come. Why? Because President Obama and most Members of Congress don’t consider our human spaceflight program to be a tangible vote-getter. As simple and as destructive as that. During the presidential campaign in 2007, then-Senator Obama said he planned to pay for his $18 billion education plan by taking it out of the hide of NASA. In defending his desire to delay the Orion and Ares programs (the next generation crew spacecraft and rockets scheduled to succeed the space shuttle), he stressed, “We’re not going to have the engineers and scientists to continue space exploration if we don’t have kids who are able to read, write and compute.”…As we have all witnessed these last few months, in order to please various special interest groups, President Obama and Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle, are anxious to spend (and waste) hundreds of billions of our money. Shockingly, from that obscene amount, they can’t find a tiny percentage to increase the knowledge, security, and commerce that would surely come our way as a direct result of continued U.S. preeminence in space. Too bad, because rather than continue in first place, the U.S. will eventually be last in space….”

Water Found on the Moon

Water Found on the Moon
September 24, 2009
Share

The Times on Line begin this very important announcement:

“…Dreams of establishing a manned Moon base could become reality within two decades after India’s first lunar mission found evidence of large quantities of water on its surface….”

Forget that, not if the base is to be built by the US. Now that we are living in the Age of Obama, and the Dems have absolute power, we’re going to be lucky if someone can launch a pea-shooter into low earth orbit. There will be no space, no science, only endless hand-outs and welfare to a group of people who will destroy our future.
