SLS is the HLLV system that was chosen. This entire concept is still the brute force method and the per pound to LEO cost is still way too high. But it is a tried and true type of multi-stage system.

<quoted text>Both Jewish and Roman sources and traditions admit an empty tomb. Those resources range from Josephus to a compilation of fifth-century Jewish writings called the "Toledoth Jeshu." Dr. Paul Maier calls this "positive evidence from a hostile source, which is the strongest kind of historical evidence. In essence, this means that if a source admits a fact decidedly not in its favor, then that fact is genuine."

<quoted text>Moon base?

I would rather see unmanned vehicles working on the moon and controlled from Houston. With the ability to send back any rocks or samples we may desire.

Hell it was exciting to land men on the moon. No other country has done so. But it is damn risky and we can’t sustain human life very long there. Why not use advanced machines with a 30 to 40 year life span?

I would be in favor of a manned telescope like the Hubble in low Earth orbit.
A manned space telescope would be nonsensical.

What do you think would be the benefit?

I really don't think we are going to Mars. That may remain a goal but the budget is going to keep it from happening. NASA needs to scrap man space flight beyond Earth orbit or Congress will. With the baby boomers getting older there's not going to be enough money for it.
Mars is a long term goal, the SLS will make it possible for lifting to the ISS, and the eventual long range trips to planets.
You see it is modular , once the 1st stage is ready , the second and third stages are easy, because they will only require more engines.
The second and third stage engines are all the same.
But we already have much this and they are already building more of them.

So you see going to mars wont cost much more, the only loss would be not getting a paycheck for lifting cargo.

I don't think any technology have been born, to counter the price of overcoming gravity from a Earth launch. But this is why the eventual
establishment of a moon base is inevitable. Along with mining space for the fuel and resources .

I believe in religious freedom. But I donít believe the Pope and the Catholic church deserve the thousands of hours the news media is going to give them.
If they want to advertise it, place a small add in the El Paso Newspaper and be done with it.
Did you know? ;)

The only 'true faith' is the Catholic one, all others were created after the Vatican establishment.

The Bible was written by some 50 men, only one of whom (Luke) was a Gentile.

The first five books of the OT (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) are known as the Five Books of Moses, the Pentateuch, or the Torah.

They are traditionally held to have been written by Moses, but modern scholars have proposed that there were four or five authors.

The book of Esther is the only book of the Bible that never mentions God.

Let the Pope slide into obscurity, he was a pedophile protector (crimens solicitations) and a former Hitler Jugen.

<quoted text>It sure did seem more carefree...maybe because we were young. Simpler times. You ate your breakfast and out the door you went. Back for lunch and then back out till supper. No parents to organize our activities. We occupied ourselves and made our own rules and learned how to interact with others. Walked into town by ourselves to go to the movies. I remember taking my 22 rifle into town to buy some ammo. Walked down the road with the gun over my shoulder on my way to pluck cans and bottles. Wonder what would happen today if you did that. Use to take my horn out in the field by my house and practice all day. No one complained, not even the cows.
Life was centered much more locally, particularly the legal system. So much of it was county and state based jurisdiction. There were a lot of crimes you jut had to step over a county line to escape. Lots of municipal courts. Lots of abuses of powers by the local authorities, too. There came quite a change in the legal system as state and federal government took over more jurisdiction of such offenses. Laws got applied more evenly, and you had less places to run to. Between that and the ascent of insurance companies, there came a more preventative mindset than punishment for violations on an individual basis, criminal and civil.

Insurance companies run the government now.
