NASA's Administrator Charles Bolden acknowledged Wednesday there is no back-up plan to fly the International Space Station if Russia cuts off U.S. access to space.

"We would make an orderly evacuation," Bolden said during a U.S. House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. Because both countries are dependent upon one another, the $140 billion station would be lost.

The administration that ceded control of space to the Soviets.

Fucking bullshit, this country could park 7 shiny new space station at various orbits if it felt so inclined to stop feeding leeches and put its fucking pants on again like a grown man, grew some fucking balls and then strapped men with bigger balls to giant fucking rockets that were monuments to awesomeness we'd all be up there drinking martinis with scantily clad three titted women

Fuck a 'merica.

NASA can send all the scientific missions it wants to, but the fact remains that "Who controls the Moon controls the Earth.".

Everyone else seems to understand this, with the exception of Out Fine Young President.

That's because, as a SSDG, the NDA will expire 50 years after I die. Of course we don't use Space shuttles anymore...
