    Great essay, WB.I was up and out looking at the sky when our first maennd spacecraft went up.And I watched last night on the NASA channel the last few hours as our shuttle came home (even though it kept me up til 3 in the morning).I can still remember before the first computers, we had men in space who could and did work out quadratic equations in their heads!I can remember our math teacher in high school trying to help us see how we could do that too.It was hard, but it wasn’t so hard you couldn’t get the hang of it after a while.We will lose much more than we realize now by ending our maennd space program.Reply

    As research for extraterrestrial life continues, NASA’ most advanced planetary rover is on precise course for an early August landing on Mars. This most sophisticated robot called Curiosity is the challenging NASA mission ever attempted in the history of the history of the robotic planetary exploration. But there is a no-negligible chance that Mars Science Lab would face an unexpected event during…touchdown because Scientists at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory used new technology based on series of sophisticated methods to slow down the spacecraft during the last seconds of landing, so some unexpected thing can happen, and even if the spacecraft turns in safety mode and the Computer Astronaut aboard the spacecraft asks for help at NASA Jet Propulsion Lab mission control, it would be late because the signal takes about nine minutes to reach Earth from Mars. The hope is everything looks good so far, so we are waiting for the last sequences of landing on Mars in this August.
    Otherwise people can ask why we continue to explore the cosmos, but, in my opinion, the answer is really simple, in accordance with Bible and Science, the human survival lies in the heavens! Now NASA, using Kepler spacecraft, is scanning the void of the universe in search for Earth-like planets, we want to prepare the future of people that will come after us thousand years in the future!( Twagirayezu, Inside NASA missions and Human Eternity, 2012)
