Deep Ocean and NASA

Oil spill one gigantic mess; if you look at the aerial pictures’ it’s one slippery sucker that in end will never really be cleaned up. The Trans Ocean, BP, Halliburton and MMS officials are all equally responsible for this environmental disaster. Eventually they will pay, not as much as we would like though, somehow a pound flesh for the ruining of the Gulf of Mexico and the lives that depend on its healthy status will never be enough.

Today I was reading a blog and someone commented: “If we can put a man on the moon, why can’t we plug this oil leak.” What I found ironic is that on Thursday NASA was holding a #tweet up for the last launch of Atlantis, and one of the questions asked by a participant  was: “I ask the same question every time I talk to astronaut, because I will never get to travel to outer space. What’s it like?” The astronaut’s response was if you ever get a chance to scuba dive in deep water, then that’s what it’s like to work in outer space. Makes you think doesn’t it? If the above mention companies had even put a tenth of the detail that NASA does into their missions, we wouldn’t be here right now.

Oh and don’t get me started on Arizona, Sarah Palin and the Tea Party from Maine. It is the weekend after all.
