    yes but we are now saving hundreds of millions of dollars on the space shuttle program and this is definitely the way to go. we should use the ISS as a launch pad to starting a base on the moon and then eventually mars

    "The SLS will have an initial lift capacity of 70 metric tons. That's more than 154,000 pounds, or 77 tons, roughly the weight of 40 sport utility vehicles. The lift capacity will be evolvable to 130 metric tons -- more than 286,000 pounds, or 143 tons -- enough to lift 75 SUVs."

    I'm confused as to what we are going to do with all of these SUV's in space.





    They must be Saturns.

    Definitely not Americans. The earth is only 5,000 years old after all.

    Except that since we cut funding it will be burning up in the atmosphere and crashing into the ocean here soon.

    Yep, NASA's just a big waste of money. Nothing useful to life on Earth has ever came from NASA. No important discoveries or inventions, nothing like that. Oh, and Earth will exist forever and our species will never have to leave to survive... its not like the sun will ever change or eventually go nova.

    I assume no sarcasm pirate is needed.

    Right now humanity has all of our eggs in one basket. Perhaps this "nerd" will save your butt someday.
