    So NASA are still footing the bill for the actual crews, their training etc, they're just serving on commercial craft.

    Bet libertarian wankstains will still credit the private sector though.

    fucthest8 The rucksack of bollocks that is work.

    I agree that the last part of your comment is likely to be the case and that it's fucking bullshit, but of course NASA are sorting it, who else will?

    Also look at the ages of that lot. Who else has the people to do this?

    It's still really fucking exciting though.

    In other news, I met an astronaut. At Edward AFB (which is called something else now, where they developed the stealth fighter). Fucked if I can remember which one now, late Apollo, obvs. I was so overwhelmed I couldn't take it in. Was 30 years ago TBF to me.
