I would be the lamest astronaut ever. I'd never get any work done, I would just spy on people all over the world. I'd experiment to see if gum, with its legendary resistance to stomach acid, could resist burning up in the atmosphere and hit Dick Cheney in the head.

Pretty sad.....yet typical.....that the HP can't post beautiful pics from space without some boneheaded political comment.

The Cupola also provides stunning views of earth and space.

If there is a God he or she must be jealous.

You mean the space station that the USA has no longer has any shuttles or rockets capable of taking astronauts to?

Oh yeah, that one.

good grief!

What are talking about??? How do you think the Cupola got there??
03:57 PM on 03/21/2010
Actually the US still has the capability to get there. That's why there's a shuttle launch coming up on April 2 and several more before the plan launched by George W. Bush (R) cancels the space shuttle. President Obama's proposal would reduce government interference in the aerospace industry and encourage private companies to develop human orbital launch capability.

"Thank you, Mr. President.

That's what we should say to President Barack Obama in light of his Fiscal Year 2011 space budget for NASA. The President courageously decided to redirect our nation's space policy away from the foolish and underfunded Moon race that has consumed NASA for more than six years, aiming instead at boosting the agency's budget by more than $1 billion more per year over the next five years, topping off at $100 billion for NASA between now and 2015. And he directed NASA to spend a billion per year on buying rides for American astronauts aboard new, commercially developed space vehicles-that's American space vehicles. Other NASA funds will go into developing and testing new revolutionary technologies that we can use in living and working on Mars and its moons. "

When the novelty question is asked, "If you could travel back in time, who would you want to meet and why?"

I think I'd like to visit some wise and wizened character, just to show them these pictures.

Show Biz. Manned space flight is a total waste of huge amounts of money.

Manned space flight isn't a total wast of money. We might need a new planet to live on soon.

I'm personally a fan of waiting until an asteroid we never see coming kills us all.
