    Just fantastic. It is a tragedy how tiny the space budgets are compared to what we spend on military. The space exploration after WW2 was not about science and exploration, it was about demonstrating power. But you can say that war is a major drive for technology, and that would be entirely correct, too. “since 1972, the year of the last Apollo lunar mission, no human has ventured farther from the Earth's surface than 386 miles,”

    "Science fiction. You’re right, it’s crazy. In fact, it’s even worse than that, it’s nuts. You wanna hear something really nutty? I heard of a couple guys who wanna build something called an airplane, you know you get people to go in, and fly around like birds, it’s ridiculous, right? And what about breaking the sound barrier, or rockets to the moon? Atomic energy, or a mission to Mars? Science fiction, right? Look, all I’m asking is for you to just have the tiniest bit of vision. You know, to just sit back for one minute and look at the big picture. To take a chance on something that just might end up being the most profoundly impactful moment for humanity, for the history…of history." - Carl Sagan

    It's truly sad and profoundly ironic, but Carl Sagan, as a leftist Jew, would never condone the conditions that would again allow such exploits. For those were done in the spirit of nationalism... Apollo was the dream of Wernher von Braun, who grew up in a world unencumbered by the self-flagellation of multiculturalism or the mind-numbing inherent in the consequent lowest-common-denominator culture. It is all this that kept us from the stars, and had Dr. von Braun's homeland been victorious, that great nation would have taken mankind to Mars by now, and the African Guinea men would be watching in awe from where they belong instead of raping our women in our own homelands and laughing at how stupid we are to let them do so.

    Stunning! Absolutely beautiful!

    Now you can really see the so called light pollution. At 2:29 it looks like the earth is about to burst from the raging magma inside.

    Nice!

    I was always underwhelmed by space, feeling sure it's just a bunch of dead rocks and radioactive balls of gas.

    But these pictures are truly magnificent. I still think we should seed the stars with life because I cannot abide that it just be a bunch of dead rocks and balls of radioactive gas.

    It definitely makes one feel small and insignificant on the vast comic scale.

    When presented with this reality, the human ego shrinks away....

    This is easily viewed from Earth.

    HD International Space Station (ISS) Fly Over with Commentry


    Here is the Website he spoke of, where you can pinpoint your location on a map and find the times when the ISS will be passing overhead.

    http://www.heavens-above.com/

    To begin, choose Configuration/select from map, then find where you are and click your point of observation on the map. It will give you details of all the fly-overs within several time periods. Go out and watch it!



    If you have access to a telescope of reasonable size, this is what you could see:

    Not me.

    I think I feel when I look into the sky, what the Vikings felt when they found an entire other side of the world to explore. They weren't ready logistically to expand that far, just as we can't handle the logistics of off-Earth colonization. However, I see an entire galaxy to explore, and from there, the rest of Midgard -- let's go to the very top of Ymir's skull.

    As much as I vehemently hate being taxed to pay losers to not work, and give hand-me-downs to worthless people, I'd have no problem, and actually be enthusiastic about paying the same taxes to advance the race.

    We should get together (as nations) and pour our combined energy and wealth into true advancement. Not only into space, but the vast, untapped regions of our seas. Let the untermenschen wallow in their filth, no more handouts. They can watch in awe as we move forward in technology and racial advancement to the time of the Ubermensch. If they want to remain little warring tribes, then the methods of resource exploitation that worked with the American Aborigine would work again.
