A New American Space Plan by Travis Taylor, Ringleader of the Rocket City Rednecks
NASA rocket scientist and self identified redneck, Travis Taylor, has a plan for getting America back into space.
Which is something America really needs right now, for many reason which Doctor Taylor lists in this book. Here is one that he wrote about, and has come to pass. The US currently has no method of getting Astronauts to the Space Station and back. Our current President put the budget for the Orion program on life support. I guess that is G.W. Bush’s fault, since the program started when he was President, so Barry felt he had to kill it. His solution was to outsource American jobs to Russia. In case you haven’t been paying attention, the US government pays Russia to get US Astronauts to the Space Station and back. Now the Russian are saying Nyet to that. It’s a good thing that the private sector is stepping up, but this is a problem we didn’t need to have.
Unlike this post, Travis Taylor’s book is mostly upbeat and positive. It should also be read in American high school science classes.
