    It's going to be awhile before they top the diaper wearing astronut of Navy Captain Lisa Nowak and her obsession bordering possession and involvment in an adulterous love triangle.

    Seriously the agency is relic of the Cold War. Mission to Earth with the Space Shuttle was plan to stay funded because when it comes to space we don't have the technology to go beyond the moon almost 30 years later. There have been no big leaps and giant steps since the Apollo program ended.

    The taxpayer would be well served if NASA was let go.

    China will be the future in regard to space. Maybe they will let the Americans hitch a ride...

    The thought of a female astronaut in diapers is well...........

    Don't worry - the environmentalists will have that tied up in court for decades.

    Mercury, did you say mercury? Think of the contamination. Worse than lead and almost impossible to clean up adequately, look at San Francisco Bay over 100 years later!!!!!!!!! Oh, were you talking about the space program, Mercury?

    SORRY,

    Seems to me NASA yearns for the glory days, they want to feel important. Like with the moon shots. But face it, going to the moon was more about the Cold War than anything else. You could call it a propaganda stunt.

    Communications satellites, robotic probes, okay. (And NASA isn't needed for that). But manned flight? It's prohibitively expensive and will remain so until there is a new method of propulsion other than chemical reaction rockets.
