    There is probably some truth to it. When that British Foreign Minister was honest about trump, trump didn't like it. :) I love "leaks". :D

    I think that British guy, had trump about right. But under the circumstances, I guess things might be a little awkward. The guy showed some class by resigning, something trump should also do, but he would rather crash the ship on the rocks, before he makes his getaway. My best guess is, that you don't even know what a "commie" is. :cool:

    A commie is you....someone that does not back a man that wants to keep your freedoms....and backs the party that wants to take them away.......you fuckin' commie.


    And SURE he resigned voluntarily and leave a real cushey job........sure he did.....he was told by his gov't to get the fuck out...........foreign gov't fear and respect the Trumpster....they KNOW him now....they respect America now.........they know to get him pissed is a bad mistake......when they meet him they set out the red carpet...they bow/shake hands....they smile.....they UNDERSTAND he has the hammer and is not afraid to use it......they know this by his past ACTIONS......you really are a dumb shit duck.

    Cushy Job? :confused: I doubt it, especially when your dealing with trumps incoherent and ignorant entourage. The guy might of been the source of the leak himself, looking for a way out, and sticking it to trump at the same time. If guys like you and trump, represent the only opposition to the Dems, then the cause is in fact, already lost.
    I just read somewhere, that the majority of Americans, now favor a manned mission to Mars? :confused: With the country essentially broke, and all of the pressing issues we face, I can't believe that the country has become so completely ignorant. WTF would anybody DO, when they got there, if they survive the trip. :confused: The most hostile place on earth, is infinitely more hospitable than any place on Mars. There is simply NO good reason, to go, and a thousand good reasons NOT to. I'll bet you are a person that supports this ridiculous endeavor, aren't you? :cool:

    Of course I support it........it's a great idea.........it is in mans nature to stretch his boundaries and continue to grow and learn......plus it is exciting, imaginative, bold, it is a natural extension of who we are..........like Kennedy and going to the moon.............some of us are not pussy's and content..............200,000 years ago people moved out of Africa...........bold stuff.

    Yeah, yeah, bold stuff, go where no man has gone before...blah, blah, blah. It's bullshit! It is nothing but a "welfare for the rich" program, nothing more. Face it man, without a major technological break-through, we're pretty much stuck right here, on this shrinking planet. Yeah, it's possible to go to Mars, but it is a frivolous waiste of money, that could be applied to more pressing, and necessary projects.
    Strange that you think Africans venturing north was "bold stuff", but if modern day people venture north, you don't view their voyages, with the same appreciation? :confused:

    Ass-hole...that's you ducky.....here is a partial list of how space travel has benefited mankind...partial........space travel is not frivolous money spent....it uplifts the spirit and benefits the world.

    Skylab was part of the Apollo Program, and carried out many remote sensing observations analogous to those of Landsat. However, one which was not analogous was sea-surface radar altimetry. Skylab carried a radar aimed down at the Earth, including the oceans. Microwaves do not penetrate electrical conductors, such as metals or water, and the radar return over oceans was from the sea surface. It was found that the Skylab radar over depressions in the ocean floor, such as the Puerto Rico trench, actually showed a subdued replica of such depressions in the overlying sea surface. Over seamounts – underwater volcanoes – the sea surface forms a slight mound. “Slight” is a relative term – the sea surface depression over the Puerto Rico trench is more than 20 meters (yards) deep.

    The explanation for this surprising discovery is that the excess mass of, for example, a seamount, pulls the surrounding ocean horizontally towards it, thus producing a slight bulge in the overlying sea surface. The opposite effect occurs over a trench, which is a mass deficiency. The Skylab radar results triggered long-term and continuing sea surface radar surveys, which have made possible detailed global maps of the sea floor impossible by any other method. So Apollo, properly defined, helped explore the part of our own planet hidden by the oceans.

    Even though it happened in 1969, the first moon landing had a lasting effect on the world. Apollo 11 represented the culmination of decades of work for NASA. John F. Kennedy's dream of putting a person on the moon seemed foolish to many, but it remains one of the highest achievements of human work and ingenuity.

    Technology
    The technological advances needed for the Apollo program accelerated innovations in rockets, computers and other space-age materials. The Mercury and Gemini missions provided the base for Apollo's systems, but life support, guidance and computer systems needed upgrades to sustain human life for the extended trip. Top scientists from around the world worked together in both the U.S. and Soviet nations to solve these problems. TV broadcasts of the first moon landing inspired new generations of people to become scientists because new things seemed possible. The technology of Apollo was advanced to enable development of space stations and new spacecraft.

    Unity
    The first moon landing united people, if only for a brief time. As Neil Armstrong stepped out of the lunar lander, 600 million people watched on television. People all around the world knew the importance of the events taking place and didn't want to miss a thing. Humans put aside their differences and shared the moment. The images of Earth rising on the moon's horizon made the planet look small, fragile and alone out in space. At a time when the war in Vietnam and the Cold War dominated the evening news, images from the first moon landing provided a moment of escape.

    NASA Technologies Benefit Our Lives
    Trace Space Back to You!

    Have you ever wondered how space exploration impacts your daily life?


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]



    Space exploration has created new markets and new technologies that have spurred our economy and changed our lives in many ways. This year, NASA unveiled two new complementary interactive Web features, NASA City and NASA @ Home, available at www.nasa.gov/city. The new features highlight how space pervades our lives, invisible yet critical to so many aspects of our daily activities and well-being.

    Health and Medicine

    Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs)

    [​IMG]
    Red light-emitting diodes are growing plants in space and healing humans on Earth. The LED technology used in NASA space shuttle plant growth experiments has contributed to the development of medical devices such as award-winning WARP 10, a hand-held, high-intensity, LED unit developed by Quantum Devices Inc. The WARP 10 is intended for the temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis, stiffness, and muscle spasms, and also promotes muscle relaxation and increases local blood circulation. The WARP 10 is being used by the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Navy as a noninvasive “soldier self-care” device that aids front-line forces with first aid for minor injuries and pain, thereby improving endurance in combat. The next-generation WARP 75 has been used to relieve pain in bone marrow transplant patients, and will be used to combat the symptoms of bone atrophy, multiple sclerosis, diabetic complications, Parkinson’s disease, and in a variety of ocular applications. (Spinoff 2005, 2008)

    Infrared Ear Thermometers

    [​IMG]
    Diatek Corporation and NASA developed an aural thermometer, which weighs only 8 ounces and uses infrared astronomy technology to measure the amount of energy emitted by the eardrum, the same way the temperature of stars and planets is measured. This method avoids contact with mucous membranes, virtually eliminating the possibility of cross infection, and permits rapid temperature measurement of newborn, critically-ill, or incapacitated patients. NASA supported the Diatek Corporation, a world leader in electronic thermometry, through the Technology Affiliates Program. (Spinoff 1991)

    Artificial Limbs

    [​IMG]
    NASA’s continued funding, coupled with its collective innovations in robotics and shock-absorption/comfort materials are inspiring and enabling the private sector to create new and better solutions for animal and human prostheses. Advancements such as Environmental Robots Inc.’s development of artificial muscle systems with robotic sensing and actuation capabilities for use in NASA space robotic and extravehicular activities are being adapted to create more functionally dynamic artificial limbs (Spinoff 2004). Additionally, other private-sector adaptations of NASA’s temper foam technology have brought about custom-moldable materials offering the natural look and feel of flesh, as well as preventing friction between the skin and the prosthesis, and heat/moisture buildup. (Spinoff 2005)

    Ventricular Assist Device

    [​IMG]
    Collaboration between NASA, Dr. Michael DeBakey, Dr. George Noon, and MicroMed Technology Inc. resulted in a lifesaving heart pump for patients awaiting heart transplants. The MicroMed DeBakey ventricular assist device (VAD) functions as a “bridge to heart transplant” by pumping blood throughout the body to keep critically ill patients alive until a donor heart is available. Weighing less than 4 ounces and measuring 1 by 3 inches, the pump is approximately one-tenth the size of other currently marketed pulsatile VADs. This makes it less invasive and ideal for smaller adults and children. Because of the pump’s small size, less than 5 percent of the patients implanted developed device-related infections. It can operate up to 8 hours on batteries, giving patients the mobility to do normal, everyday activities. (Spinoff 2002)



    Transportation

    Anti-Icing Systems

    [​IMG]
    NASA funding under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program and work with NASA scientists advanced the development of the certification and integration of a thermoelectric deicing system called Thermawing, a DC-powered air conditioner for single-engine aircraft called Thermacool, and high-output alternators to run them both. Thermawing, a reliable anti-icing and deicing system, allows pilots to safely fly through ice encounters and provides pilots of single-engine aircraft the heated wing technology usually reserved for larger, jet-powered craft. Thermacool, an innovative electric air conditioning system, uses a new compressor whose rotary pump design runs off an energy-efficient, brushless DC motor and allows pilots to use the air conditioner before the engine even starts. (Spinoff 2007)

    Highway Safety

    [​IMG]
    Safety grooving, the cutting of grooves in concrete to increase traction and prevent injury, was first developed to reduce aircraft accidents on wet runways. Represented by the International Grooving and Grinding Association, the industry expanded into highway and pedestrian applications. The technique originated at Langley Research Center, which assisted in testing the grooving at airports and on highways. Skidding was reduced, stopping distance decreased, and a vehicle’s cornering ability on curves was increased. The process has been extended to animal holding pens, steps, parking lots, and other potentially slippery surfaces. (Spinoff 1985)

    Improved Radial Tires

    [​IMG]
    Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company developed a fibrous material, five times stronger than steel, for NASA to use in parachute shrouds to soft-land the Vikings on the Martian surface. The fiber’s chain-like molecular structure gave it incredible strength in proportion to its weight. Recognizing the increased strength and durability of the material, Goodyear expanded the technology and went on to produce a new radial tire with a tread life expected to be 10,000 miles greater than conventional radials. (Spinoff 1976)

    If you want more...see here.......https://spinoff.nasa.gov/Spinoff2008/tech_benefits.html


    The difference beteen me and you is I provide FACTS....you provide bull-shit puffery.....words that show / prove NOTHING.......when you look up the word loser in the dictionary there is a picture of you...........


    Trump has and will continue to whip your skinney, little white ass........it should be sore by now..........777

    What took you so long, getting fitted for a set of prosthetic testiculs
    Using orbiters to like sky lab to study the earth, is the best and most practical application of NASA. So what do you think we ought to do about that "Puerto Rican" depression? 20 meters sounds like a lot to me, but I don't have any info, to the contrary. Men walked on the moon, before NASA was 11 years old, so "Decades" ? :confused: Let's not exaggerate.
    Apollo was basically a political thing, and still is. It was a substantial achievement at the time, just to do it, though.
    It is my opinion, that we have much more important needs to address, than any manned mission to Mars. I mean, we (the U.S.) don't even have a vehicle for manned space flight, we depend on Russia, how very ironic.
    It seems to me, ridiculous, to talk about a "manned mission to Mars" when we are not even providing a decent V.A. Hospital system. :confused: There is likely, nothing on Mars that requires or immediate attention, but there are many things, right here and now, that do. One thing that's very important, would be finding ourselves a "decent" President, within the next 16 months. :cool:

    During a job interview the Human Resources Director, seemed impressed with a retiree interviewing for part time work.
    The Director asked "What are some of your negative attributes?"
    The retiree replied, "Honesty"
    The Director said, "Honesty?", "Well I don't see how honesty can be a negative factor!"
    The retiree replied, "I don't give a fuck what you think!" :rolleyes:
