Aerojet Rocketdyne? That's a space themed daycare center.

Incidentally, its manned spaceflight program is as advanced as anything NASA's got right now.

Yup... That's what I came in here to say. With Russia being our current ride up there, we should probably be working on a backup plan of some sort right now, in case our current pissing contest with them leaves one of our guys stuck on the ISS or something.

The day China lands a man on the moon, congress will start screaming about US exceptional-ism and we will have all the funding we need for Space Rave 2.0 for Mars.   But dont worry, we wont raise taxes on the 1%.

This.

I was on the cusp of going to Russia for an astrophysics grad program - I had everything worked out and was filling out applications when they went from "bad at human rights" to "kill our own citizens" to "invade Europe!"  Decided getting killed for being a foreigner was a bad idea.  But Russia recently put $50B into their space program and they'e building a huge launch facility in eastern Siberia.  I figured I could work over there until things started happening and the US actually put money toward space research, then come home.  Now I'll get to help privatize space travel.  My life-long dream; make space a playground and curiosity for the rich.

No.  They contribute nearly 30% of personal income taxes gathered.  Not total taxes gathered.  That's idiotic.

And they take home 20% of the income of the entire county:  http://seattletimes.com/html/nationworld/2021795994_incomegapxml.html

And they control nearly 40% of the wealth of the entire county:  http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-04-03/top-tenth-of-1-percen t ers-reaps-all-the-riches

Depends on how things shake out.
2021 is a political eternity and programs which don't deliver short term will likely be cut and forgotten by then (need we be reminded of the lunar trips that were slated to happen now under Bush, or the regular space ferrying runs and commercial projects scheduled under Clinton and Reagan before him).
With SLS soaking up a lot of money to go nowhere till then, and the possibility that commercial programs will be forced to down select to one vendor (which will defeat the purpose, and which will select Boeing no matter how much Spacex delivers on Reusables), chances are that we won't be Russia free for some time.

/Space isn't the vote grabbing issue it used to be and Russia provides an affordable escape from the expense.
/they just have to stall until the iss is retired. Which is about mid 2020's.
/they'll sooner buy another stealth bomber or two In the mean time.

Ok, you brought up the whole the "it's somehow the 1%'s fault that we aren't in space" or something.  You can hate the rich all you want I just know that the 1% writes bigger checks to the government than I make all year.  And I still bet I'm not far off with them contributing 30% of all tax gathered as they probably also pay more in sales tax than I make all year on top of their income tax.  Also the corporations they work for, and produce more wealth for which is why they get paid more, carries plenty of the tax burden as well. And guess what, it's not my concern! I've never had a 1%er take anything from me or even give me a wedgie.  Why you think everyone deserves more of the money they earn by only saying it should be so doesn't make any sense.  And even if taxes were raised on the top earners, which wouldn't be bad if you could actually spend it usefully, you think that's going to go to the space program first? Ridiculous.  There's plenty of bad things 1%ers do, but they doesn't mean that the other 99% are a whole lot of angels either.  It's simply more conspicuous because they have more money.

Mr. Linux has convinced himself that NASA is nothing more than corporate welfare, and nothing draws out the free market apologists like someone complaining about corporate welfare.  It's like a perfect storm of partisan derp.



NASA sure loves them some tax money though, don't they????   what was their budget last year............

they do loves them some Space (and the aerospace companies they own) but they prefer the middle/working classes to pay for it.   the middle/working classes pay for it, and the richest 1% reap the profits.


ain't Freedom great!

you sound fat


nope.   work out 2 hours ever other day.  approx 1 hour 15 minutes free weights and 40 minutes of stationary bike.  6'2" and 195lbs.

you were close, though.

i guess if you don't have a job it's easy to work out a lot


no, when you have a desk jockey job, it's easy to work out alot.   you were close, though.

So you are ironically accepting a paycheck as a corporate shill while simultaneously and anonymously bemoaning corporate greed and representative democratic principles?  You are sticking it to the man!!!!!

it isn't good for crooked Big Business.


Corruption should of course be rooted out wherever it is found. It would be a much more productive campaign, if successful, to root our waste and corruption in both the public and private sectors than to attempt to change the tax rate by a few percent. Though that would take some new scientific discovery that was able to change human nature.

As pointed out, your numbers are wrong.
You should, instead, point to the amount of money being shunted towards people who provide no production capability in any useful capacity.


yea, that explains the growing wealth gap in 'murica.  the largest it's ever been in this Nation's history.  keep flogging that dead horse.

Unless there's a massive leap in space travel, sending humans to space is too expensive and dangerous right now.  Let the robots and computers do the experiments.

Ah, the good old myth that democrats are supporters of space exploration when in reality, they only support give out as much free shiat as possible to get the illiterate unwashed masses to vote for them.

i forgot to mention that the wealth gap began in the Reagan 80's.  there has been a few hiccups since, but the real Fruit of the 80's was bore in the 08/09 Great Recession.

this Nation's been bleeding jobs to communist (acc. to CIA.gov)  china since the 80's.  where have you been??

it's not too expensive if the tax payer pays for it and the Corporations reap the profits.

well done, chap.   you've written a fine piece of Fiction!  I must say!

I guess a $1,000,000 a pound is cheap.

 Dangerous? It's safer than it's ever been.

it's always cheap when the tax payer is paying for it.  it becomes expensive only when YOU are paying for it.

The number of people lost in the US space program is vanishingly small. It's why you could only find 3 pictures of 3 fatal incidents, from the 60s, 80s, and 00s, respectively.

And as far as the $1,000,000 per pound figure you pulled ex recto, those costs are going to sink like a rock once the private sector takes over the scut work of space travel, like sending cargo to and from the ISS or ferrying people in and out of low-Earth orbit. Big exploration missions will never be that inexpensive by their very nature, but even with those types of missions, the costs are coming down drastically thanks to things like 3D printing technology and 21st-century design techniques.

But you go right ahead and keep thinking we should stay at home on Earth, curled up in our blankies safe from any and all forms of risk. The rest of us will keep looking to the stars.

Today's lesson is the difference between "big" and "bigger." A neutron is bigger than a neutrino. But is a neutron big? Woah. Relatives and absolutes are crazy!

I don't think space travel is too dangerous, but you maximize your benefit to cost ratio. Ego takes a back seat.
