The space-shuttle program ended on July 21, 2011, with the final mission of Atlantis touching to Earth. But why did it end? Many debate that it had to do with “aliens”, the common response, and it still is! The answers that are obvious are these – budget cuts and danger.
The Challenger Disaster and the Columbia Disaster were the true coffin openers for the program. We needed to find a way to exit the atmosphere with no dangers and disasters. We cannot risk the lives of our own to find a way to get to the moon. When the space program relaunches, we will have a new, sophisticated design. We’d love to get into space – safely that is.
Budget cuts stink, and we know this from daily life. If we can’t afford to run our services, they must perish. The debt of the United States is around 18.1 trillion dollars. We will not see this descending any time soon by the looks of the current economic position. Most also question how we can shuttle astronauts to the International Space Station without a program. The U.S. actually relies on the Russians, costing 63 million dollars per astronaut.
The thought of NASA running away from the moon as a result of aliens is just illogical and scientifically absurd. If there were aliens on our moon, we could see civilization (sometimes) with our bare eyes. I believe that it was in fact due to budget problems and cuts. Study your own economy and such ways that humans work. This proves that it has an impact on our futures and daily life.
Will they have the money to fly to the moon once again? Share your thoughts with us.
