    Default An endeavour to have a flight into space

    Do you think you have this opportunity
    even though you have enough
    money to do so within the next five
    years?

    If not would you collectively help others
    to have this event happens before you
    leave this earth?

    Am glad you understood the thread title.

    Let me get it first, do you mean magpies are the soft soft ones that have to
    get themselves into a staircase, is that what you mean?

    As for the buffalo, maybe you want something heavy to eat up all the magpies
    or to stand on top of the magpies staircase? Am I getting the right point of
    what you are saying?

    It hasn't got into my mind that "Superman" is a real human being.
    Not within the next five years even if all of a sudden and miracles,
    some earthlings turn to be real supermen.

    Space tourism is still in its infancy, I sincerely do not visualise a journey beyond the Karman Line be available to the masses within the next couple of decade or so, at least not within my lifetime. Though It is a life long dream of mine to at least be able to look up to the stars and feel that I have contributed in one way or another towards human space exploration into the final frontier, and which is why I had chose a career as an aerospace engineer as naive as it may sound.

    Last Friday happened to be NASA Day of Remembrance honouring the lost crew of Apollo 1, STS-51-L and STS-107 and other NASA personnel who sacrifice their life in the spirit of exploration and just so the human race could further advance our diminutive and limited knowledge of the universe.

    As China, India and Japan continue to exert an increasing presence beyond the Kármán line with their ambitious Human Space Flight (HSF) initiative, the Obama administration had elected to terminate the repeatedly delayed and over budget Constellation Program (CxP) leaving NASA and America as a whole with absolutely no capability, since Project Mercury began in 1959, to launch a man into space after the space shuttle fleet is retired in September 2010.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Space Shuttle Endeavour (OV-105) in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) closes in for docking with the International Space Station (ISS) positioned 300 km above the surface of our home planet during STS-130/ISS-20A. This is the final fifth STS mission before the space shuttle is retired on the 16th of September 2010.
