Australia is the only western developed country without a space program, If Australia had one the benefits would be overwhelming.
> Over 9000 jobs would be created.
> Our economy would grow stronger.
> Kids who always dreamt of wanting to be astronauts can be instead of becoming American citizens and joining Nasa which would cost thousands.
> We are in the perfect position here in Australia for one. Even NASA would back an Australian Space Program.
There is some Disadvantages to this but not many, as you can see a space program would add to our already booming economy and create tons of jobs.
THE OFFICIAL MICHAEL JACKSON FAN CLUB BULGARIA want to send Michael Jackson's "Man In The Mirror" song on the moon.
It will be the same project like sending the voice of our bulgarian folklor singer Valia Balkanska.
We want Michael Jackson's voice in the cosmos!
I will be closing this petition tomorrow night after the local election.
The City of Titusville, FL is threatening employees with a 10% pay cut through furloughs and pay reduction, no pay raises, rising health costs and a reduction in 50% of their pensions. The city has paid these employees lower than average salaries for years compared to other municipalities their size in Central Florida.
These employees have been retained with a promise of decent pensions at retirement. These employees have not had pay raises in five years nor cost of living allowances, their health costs have increased and they have to pay into their own pensions. The City is willing to reduce services to the citizens of Titusville by enacting furlough days which means closing city offices for two days a month.
The city has $20M in the Water Department and over $5M in a "Rainy Day Fund" to shore up the budget but refuse to do so and want their 433 employees to shoulder the difference. Police and Fire fighters have paid 6.5% of their pay into their own pensions since 1994 and general employees pay 2.5% of their pay into their pensions.
By now you all have heard of the shuttles retirement. Retiring the shuttle, while bitter sweet, was the right thing to do. Leaving no successor though was a grave error in judgment.
While the new policies to let civilian companies design spacecraft to ferry astronauts back and forth to the international space station is a good idea, America still needs a strong Space program to lead the way. And while we support President Obama we must bring to his attention the grave mistake that is taking place with today’s space program.
In 1993 the U.S. commissioned a new low earth orbit Spacecraft to replace the aging shuttle fleet. This new spacecraft was going to, as in all new designs; make space cheaper and easier to access. The name of this new spacecraft was the Lockheed Martin Venture Star. But like all new concepts, problems with its design and a new president the program was mothballed do to budget cuts. But with today’s advances in technology I believe that those design defects can easily be corrected.
That is why I believe that the Venture star would be a viable replacement for the space shuttle. The X-33 test plane and all its associated materials are just sitting in a warehouse waiting to be revived. The Venture stare was a vision of future space flight and with your help we can once again make it a reality and put NASA back on the map as a leader in astronautics. Thank you
Thomas Michael Fletcher, singer and guitarist of the English band called McFly, always dreamed about go to space with NASA. For a long time he tried to contact this company and watch some launches. Like his own mother, Debbie Fletcher, said "We've tried for 20 years to take him to see a shuttle launch, kept missing it. Finally got there last year but because of delay, he had to watch it from the roof of Orlando Airport while we stood at Jetty Park. Luckily his flight was delayed or he would have missed it altogether".
In some songs and videoclips of McFly you can see him talking about the space and doing something to reach this dream. We hope that this petition helps him to achieve this dream: going in a tourist trip to space. Thank you so much.
Q!PAW is a bi-weekly podcast about comics made by two british guys called Matt and Jon. http://panelologists.com/
Ever since humanity began to walk upright, comics began to be created in crude yet effective cave drawings. People evolved the amount of colors they can use by searching far and wide for different plants that can produce different colors that will allow the crude comics to become better, and allow the viewers to distinguish between guy-with-a-spear #1 and guy-with-a-spear #2.
As time progressed those crude drawings spread as far as egypt where color was abundent (which is weird considering it's mostly sand) where the art of comics became more elaborate and more of an art form.
It continued to evolve greatly by USA companies like Marvel and DC that saw a vision, and that vision was "let's make money" - a vision which they hold to this day.
And ever since that art form was conceived there were people who were more than happy to poo-poo it.
People who couldn't draw comics so they had to trace it, and add pouches to the original work to make it crap.
Those guys are Q!PAW. And they're funny.
N.A.S.A is consolidating two sites. A Texas site and an Ohio Site.
