We won't be seeing this anymore. Too bad Obama hates science.

Obama is stupid, yes, but the shuttle fleet needed to be retired. They're old as hell and electronics upgrades can only go so far.

The lack of funding sucks too, americans are too stupid to pay taxes for anything good.

Innocent Bystander
Relax guys. Once the Hadron Collider thingy opens Stargate we won't need spaceships.

^^^^ this gets bonus fairy stars ******

Bush ordered the shuttle retirement and underfunded its replacement, dumbass

samstein
It looks like you need to correct the wikipedia page then.

"... in early 2010 the Obama administration asked Congress to instead endorse a scaled-back plan ..."

Bush's speech in 2004
http://history.nasa.gov/Bush%20SEP.htm

"In 2010, the Space Shuttle -- after nearly 30 years of duty -- will be retired from service."

The Constellation Program started then, but was severely underfunded and as of 2010 it was years behind schedule. Obama did scrap the majority of Constellation at that point on recommendation from the Augustine Commission, because it wasn't going anywhere and had significant cost overruns. The most developed part of it, the Orion capsule, is still being finished and will be used on the new SLS heavy lift rockets, which are being developed instead of Constellation's Ares dual rockets.

Don't worry, Richard Branson will take us back!

Lotta fine trolling in here, but let's get a few things straight.

Aerospace Engineer by schooling here.

The Space Shuttles were the single most expensive way to get things into orbit at about k/lb, neglecting R&D costs, and k/lb if you include and amortize R&D. It was originally billed as offering costs around /lb.

NASA loved to brag that it was the most complicated machine ever built, as if this was a bragging point. They promised airline-style operations for a vehicle that has 700 mission-critical parts. HINT: Airliners have 0 mission-critical parts.

The STS was a galactic fuck-story that has set space exploration back by 40 years. Branson ain't gonna make up for that. Elon Musk might, though. The bullshit Constellation and Heavy Lift projects will be, surprise surprise, over-budget, under-performing, shitty complicated death-traps. It's all NASA knows hoe to do.

SolRo
To be fair, comparing a reusable rocketship that has to go from zero to some 20,000 mph - AND INTO SPACE - to an airplane, is the same as comparing an F1 car to a hotwheels toy.

Cool story, bro. So what you're saying is, we may as well just try and build rockets in our back yard to get into space because that's likely to happen first.

The Mothership
better than the original? not sure, but 5 anyway.

looks like the same source footage, but this version's been edited and remixed
