    I figured it's because anything in geosynchronous orbit must be at the equator.

    Technically it's geostationary orbits that remain over the equator. That's not necessarily true for geosynchronous orbits.

    RIP Science and Engineering.

    My uncle was a great professor at MIT for many years. Dr. John Trump. And I didnt talk to him about this particular subject, but I have a natural instinct for science, and I will say that you have scientists on both sides of the picture.

    More scientists believe in anthropogenic global warming than cigarettes causing cancer. Both are settled science.

    An oil spill you've never heard of could become one of the biggest environmental disasters in the US

    (CNN)In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil tragedy commanded the nation's attention for months. Eleven lives were lost and communities around the Gulf of Mexico ground to a halt under hundreds of millions of gallons of oil. Yet, lurking underneath the fresh disaster, an older spill was spewing ever faithfully forth: A leak that began when another oil platform was damaged six years earlier.
    The Taylor oil spill is still surging after all this time; dumping what's believed to be tens of thousands of gallons into the Gulf per day since 2004. By some estimates, the chronic leak could soon be larger, cumulatively, than the Deepwater disaster, which dumped up to 176.4 million gallons (or 4.2 million barrels) of oil into the Gulf. That would also make the Taylor spill one of the largest offshore environmental disasters in US history.
    We just really don't give a **** about the environment. At all.

    NASA is finally starting to hit its stride.

    Initially it was just a showpiece as we put the first man on the moon. Then it became a novelty as it launched satellites to explore other planets. But its finally found its role - working with private enterprise to promote private space commercial enterprises and the emerging tax paying industries tied to that.

    9 US Companies Are Going to the Moon! Here Are NASA's New Partners.

    The general idea is that these companies will be able to compete for contracts to deliver NASA science experiments to the surface of the moon by flying lunar landers on rocket launches purchased from other commercial space companies. But under this approach, NASA won't be alone in hiring these companies — the agency hopes to spur development that the commercial sector can also utilize. "We want to be first customers, not only customers," Thomas Zurbuchen, NASA's head of the science mission directorate, said during the event.

    Only question is when? Last Man on the Moon was in the last days of Richard Nixon's *first* term.

    And what will be reaction if/when somebody dies out there? Some authors speculate it will be 10%.

    I despise the idea of commercialized space. Maybe thats unfounded but I generally dont like it.

    I don't like it either, but it's likely the reality of making much progress beyond our solar system.

    2.5B over 10 years? That's just barely enough money to keep the lights on for a serious moon shot effort. I don't understand the point.

    That's because that's not the point.

    NASA is becoming less about being the space organization to do everything or even finance everything...and more about being one that partners to encourage development of the emerging tech industry.

    If it allows us to own a huge new tax generating industry...that can't be all bad.

    I've read enough on the subject to believe trying to colonize Mars might be the single worst idea in the history of mankind.

    It would be better to spend all those resources on making this planet better. Fixing the things we've ruined. Etc. Way better.
