Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Now NASA has a drug problem

The Space Shuttle's launch has been delayed again.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., July 3 -- NASA engineers were deciding Monday whether to delay the Independence Day launch of space shuttle Discovery because of the loss of foam insulation from the orbiter's external fuel tank.

Mission Management Team chair John Shannon said a three-inch triangle of foam broke off a bracket holding the liquid oxygen feed line to the side of the tank, apparently as the tank was being emptied after Sunday's scrubbed launch attempt.

The triangle weighed .0057 of a pound, roughly half the size of any fragment that could do significant damage to the thermal tiles on the shuttle's underbelly, Shannon said.
My opinion on the Space Shuttle hasn't changed in a year. Scrap the program.

Why does NASA have a drug problem. Read the Washington Post headline.

Crack May Further Delay Shuttle Launch

Just your daily dose of sarcasm brought to you by Don Surber through TFM. Thanks Don.
