I was watching the Fox News Channel’s Discovery space shuttle launch coverage and I started thinking about what is about to happen. A lot is being risked on this flight, arguably the future of America’s space program. I hope we have a successful launch today.
Some say that NASA is a waste of America’s resources, and that we should re-prioritize our expenses. I’ll give it to them, with the amount of money that is spent of NASA we could fix many of the problems facing Americans today. But I think the possibilities of the future are more important than the current. With that just look at how much better our lives are because of NASA’s countless contributions to society.
Good luck STS-121!
