Can we scrap NASA
Just give SpaceX the money. Not what I prefer, but back the horse that works.

NASA should focus entirely on space probes, leaving all rocket design to private industry. Should’ve happened a long time ago but the Alabama senators love their pork.

Even Bezos’ company can launch rockets. Although they are aiming for space tourism first though.

Everybody is focused on Mars but I wish we'd send a probe to Europa or Enceladus to look for life. I think there's some type of living organisms in the liquid ocean under the ice.

Obama pretty much already scrapped the agency.

Cut ‘em some slack. Between the rockets in Huntsville and the hospital in Birmingham, there’s very little in Alabama worth spending gobs of federal money on.

Boeing is basically running the show for Artemis.

Maybe instead is scrapping NASA, we should scrap Boeing.

Cheapest is to build in house imo.

When Nasa was shut down ULA(Boeing and Lockheed)was getting all the contracts for bids at cost plus 10% and running up OT thus running up margins. SpaceX has come along and put a big wrench in that.

It's a shame what they've done to Nasa.

There is one planned. Look up the Europa clipper mission. However, it’s handcuffed to launch on SLS which is in doubt big time.

Are we pretending SpaceX never had failures?

What an ignorant comment.

Just be glad we are not scrapping dumbasses.

NASA'a only problem? Like all government agencies hiring is now quota based instead of qualification and/or experience.

By the way, the Hollywood revisionist movie Hidden Figures lied.

Here are the real people who put us on the moon. This is how they did it. Slide rules and chalk. No computers and, no, Katherine Johnson DID NOT lay the foundation.

Truth is, a bunch of former Nazis put us on the moon.

We are about to move into a huge expansion of govt, not any sort of retraction. We'll probably have a 2nd NASA startup.

Wish NASA would just let us meet aliens and quit playing around

I know they know how to contact them and where they are so just freaking let us hang out with them.

I want to know what alien beer tastes like
