Full story: KGWC-TV Casper

"...explain how everything came to be."

I doubt it, but more power to them. I just wish private investors were looking for God instead of taxpayers.

Well, it was a TV station's report. Chalk it up to media hyperbole.

A true science report, done by someone with some real knowledge of science, would have said something along the lines of...

...will search for more clues of how the universe came to be.

I am certain no scientist expects it to explain how everything came to be.

So, doesn't this sound like a B-rated sci-fi movie from the 50's??? A huge magnet placed on the space station, think about this for a moment. What if a wave of cosmic rocks have metal in them, will the magnet draw them to it? If that happens, it would knock out the space shuttle, correct? Thus, hurling it towards the earth, perhaps knocking out satellites in it's path. Now remember kiddies, the cosmic rocks are bigger than the space shuttle itself. This time you get to make up an ending to this story....

Why America is donating the Magnet and the American technology and leaving the Space Station behind to US enemies? The space station that was built with American cutting edge technology and innovation of our scientists of NASA was stolen from the American people and given to the enemies of America including China, Russia, Iran and Pakistan that will use the Space Station for controlling the space above America. It is not surprising that Obama first priority for NASA after his election was to transfer as much technology to the socialistic regimes and to the Arab Mozlem brother regimes such as Iran, which means putting our lives under the umbrella of anti-American regimes. Obama and US congress are responsible for the loss of the Space Station to the enemies of America that will use it against the American people sooner than later.
