British Solution To NASA's Shuttle Woes

Shoulda been "A British soln..." woulda made more sense, pardon the knitpick.



The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

Lokk silly for the life of the people in the space station. Really not much respect for the work they are doing right now. Thing about it next time!

Cheers. Kilavoud.

I'm sure the team will get back down ok...although we can't be 100% sure that they will (and are you 100% sure that you won't get hit by a bus today?) we can be sure that NASA has scrutinized those pics of the shuttle! I doubt they'd let the orbiter re-ernter if they even thought there was a 1% chance of something going wrong. They'll arrive home fine, it was a good joke and i hope Atlantis gets to go up without too much of a delay  Smile

Cheers

ps, here in Canada it seems to be Lifestyles instead of durex! lol

I believe that they launched the shuttle with a 1 in 100 chance (1%) of something going wrong. They would probably do the same thing for the landing.

How is it NASA can build a multi-squillion dollar shuttle but not stop bits of it falling off as it takes off ? Some build-quality issues perhaps ? I hope they make it down OK.

Does this mean the end of the horse-drawn zeppelin manned shuttle program ? Especially if Discovery is abandoned and breaks up on re-entry, that leaves them with one, right ? Oh dear.

Bits are probably falling off the shuttle because it's made in America, and not in Japan or China  Wink

"American components, Russian components all made in Taiwan"

"This is how we fix things on russian space station" Hits box with metal spanner.

I quote from the crazy russian in armageddon.

Those astronauts knew the risks of going up, they took it if shit happens they decided to take the risk and we wouldnt have a problem of finding more to replace them, including my self. The Space programme must go on no matter what the cost. Not necessarily the shuttle programme.

Ask 'Leary how to do it low cost style..............

Haven't they got two? Atlantis and Endevour?

Maybe they should use the stuff that is on the back of price labels on kids toys. This stuff is soooo sticky not only won't it come off the toy but if you get it on your fingers you stick to bloody well everything!

A simple job of holding foam on a spaceship travelling at Mach 26 would be no probem.
