Nasa doesnt make rockets, it just uses them.

The person who posted this needs to read the article. The Taurus rocket is made by Orbital...which is also the same people that provided the rocket for that oxygen breathing unmanned aircraft that also crashed not too long ago. I actually used to work for a company that made lightweight satallites that were launched using Orbitals rockets. 75% of the flights had to be self destructed due to Orbitals rockets malfunctioning

Aren't the rockets supposed to be crashing slightly north of the Indian Ocean?

Yeah, how long until a rocket "accidentally" crashes in Kabul?

"Officials with the financially struggling company had hoped the satellite's keen vision - it was designed to spy objects as small as a yard across - would boost its sales in the competitive market for space imagery"

Nice. My window is not much wider than a yard. Maybe I can find out when they are taking a picture me so I can smile. What an ego I have, thinking they would want my picture. I think I'm P A R A N O I D.

Cremated ashes in orbit around the Earth is pretty cool, but I think my naked freeze dried body hurled into deep Oort cloud orbit would be cooler.
