    One of mankind's most incredible feats is happening right now and has been all but ignored by the media.....


    The comet is traveling through space at around
    55,000 kph (34,000 mph), but somehow the boffins at the ESA managed to maneuver Rosetta in such a way that, despite playing interstellar catch-up for 10 years, its relative speed is now just 2.2 mph (1 meter per second) faster than the comet.

    That movie is awesome - the way they time the gravity assist flybys to project them out further is amazing.

    But we're still funding their muslim outreach program, right?

    I mean, we don't want to lose sight of our priorities when it comes to space research.

    NASA wasted 30+ years milking that piece of shit shuttle program. Screw 'em. Europe and Russia are the only ones smart enough these days.

    Always amazes me how the half brained political idiots can turn any thread into a hate Obama thread.
