I'm disappointed that the boilerplate capsule didn't have its' parachute-system onboard (Unlike the Apollo abort tests). NASA really should've been given the funding to do a proper series of pad and launch abort tests like the Mercury and Apollo capsules did back in the 1960s with their Little Joe I and II LAS rockets.

You will never go to the moon. You are not allowed there. Do you remember in 1969 when you were told to go back?

I’m just happy we are one step closer to preventing the Challenger Disaster from happening again.

Space is the last Frontier for Mankind. It’s also the most important. There are Worlds beyond our world, whether you acknowledge their existence or not these places are out there. You see the Moon don’t you? Other planets? You can see Mars and Venus without a telescope how can people be so ignorant?

If it were painful to be stupid, all of you would strive differently.

Time and again (for *decades now*), pols talk loudly of doing this. Then they talk quietly of cancelling it. (repeat ad nauseum). I will believe it when I see it.

FIFTY YEARS since NASA allegedly landed men on the moon... and they can't replicate that feat with 2019 technologies? Something really stinks.

You can always count on Nasa for a pack of lies.

Any cent given to fake space travel is 'over budget'

I think this is a rerun. Spend money, time and effort on things going on with our own planet.

Fifty years ago Tuesday, Apollo 11 blasted off from Earth for its historic mission to the moon. Charlie Duke was the voice on the radio talking to the astronauts, as flight director Gene Kranz led mission control during the lunar landing. Above the moon, Michael Collins piloted the Apollo 11 command module while his fellow astronauts walked the moon's surface. Mark Strassmann spoke with all three men.
