1,200 NASA workers to be laid off

Well we new it was going to happen so all I can say is ******* kak!

After attending CV in Orlando, we took the day tour of the Kennedy Space Center. In the afternoon was a bus tour out to the launch pads & due to lightning strikes in the 5 mile safe area we were not allowed off the bus so I took pics through the windows. We were very close to the pads & it was awesome...  8)



This is launch pad 39-a, this is the only operational pad left.



Launch pad 39-b... or what's left of it. It's being dismantled & it's a done deal.  :'(



The Orion launch tower on the crawler-transporter, built & soon to be dismantled. ****!  :'(

1 person on this planet will walk on the moon again or Mars, that person will be Chinese... kak!

NASA find new type of lifeform (on earth)

It's a bacteria whose basic building block is arsenic.
