The NASA Constellation Program Has Been Cancelled!

As many of you know, I hold NASA near and dear to my heart. ¬†My father worked at the Kennedy Space Center his entire life until he retired in 1999. ¬†My brother still works at Kennedy Space Center and I have an engineering degree that was supposed to be used at NASA, but I stumbled across radio while in college and took another path. ¬†So it bothers me to see us abandoning important work in space exploration. ¬†An electrical engineer with NASA named Calvin Turzillo made a video that shows why it is important that we continue the Constellation program and what will be lost if we do not. ¬†There is some amazing rocket footage in this video and you will learn a lot just watching it. ¬†He also points out that about 7,000 more people will be out of work when Constellation is shut down. ¬†More¬†unemployment!
Mostly though, it is just a great video about an important part of NASA that is about to be shut down.
