Marxist Obama took us out of space for whatever reasons he can explain in some future book. President John Kennedy who guided us to the moon must have turned over in his grave with Obama taking us out of the space program and what made it even worse we had to fly piggyback on board a Russian spacecraft at about $86 million a pop. I always looked at that as so very embarrassing.
The following was posted by James Rodgers, published by Fox News: “SpaceX has launched NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken on their historic Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station (ISS). The mission is the first time that astronauts have launched from American soil since the final Space Shuttle flight in 2011.”
“Hurley and Behnken blasted off from Kennedy Space Center’s historic launch pad 39A, which was also used for the Apollo and space shuttle programs, at 3:22 p.m. ET Saturday. An attempt on Wednesday was scrubbed due to weather conditions.”
“The launch is the first time a private company, rather than a national government, has sent astronauts into orbit.”
“After a short journey into orbit, Crew Dragon began its 19-hour journey to the orbiting space lab. The duration of the astronauts’ stay on the orbiting space lab is yet to be determined.”
“After separation, the Falcon 9 booster successfully returned to Earth, landing on a drone ship in the Atlantic.”
Why would Obama want to stop our space program is a thought that should be shared by many considering you still have Russia and China that wants to use space for offensive means and that is the main reason Trump came out with our sixth military branch the Space Force to counter anything Russia or China might be planning.
President Trump has big plans for our space program such as landing a person on the moon again and using the moon as a stepping stone to Mars, that my patriots is true exceptionalism!
