What do the Astronauts mean to you?
    #1274247 - 02/03/03 01:06 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

why should the deaths of people flying in a space ship be significant to the "American people" and not say the death of Harold Smith, homeless dumpster digger extrordinaire? why, when i turn on the TV, am i invited to "join America in mourning the deaths" of these astronauts? i didn't know them. i didn't know anyone even remotely related to them. i'm not in anyway familiar with them. and yet i am supposed to mourn this "national tragedy." of course, it's unfortunate and certainly it is horrible for their friends, family, etc. to lose a loved one, but why should i care? why should I mourn? i haven't lost anything. of course one could say the same thing about many of the tragedies, causes, and concerns that we are constantly invited to take up arms for. i, personally, have trouble finding much emotional content when considering the 9/11 bombing, whereas one girl i saw on the day of the event, a person who has no connection with NYC or anyone/thing in NYC, couldn't stop crying over it. it seems like emotional confusion to me. misplaced affect. manufactured mourning.

Just another reason why friends shouldn't let freinds drive under the influence of moon rocks.

I feel exactly like you.
I think this is being exagerated.
Not only on american tv, but on canadian tv also!!
Even in France  :crazy:

A few days ago, 7 people (children I think) got killed in an avanlanche.
Do you think they talked about them as much as they did about the astronauts?
I believe these 7 dead people were as important as the astronauts. They were human beings too.

i know i dont speak for everyone else, but alot of people i know, and myself, have a love for space.

to me, space personifies the idea of beauty and knowledge in the world - it is the ultimate unknown that cannot be, but beckons for an answer

sure i didnt know any of the astronauts that died on saturday, and i dont really care about tax dollars lost in another country - but i shared the dream that is the [human] space program, and i mourn for those fallen astronauts because they lost their lives trying to accomplish something so noble and true in the human persuit of knowledge.

I don't give a rats ass that those astronauts died. I had the same feeling you did. Who the fuck cares?! Thousands of people die everyday, in very tragic ways.. which should make humanity mourn. But no... we as a "country" must mourn together? I'm sorry I don't get it. I also don't get why we have countries, but thats another issue.

I mourn all death that I hear about.

Do I hold this in any higher regard than the homeless guy I read about in the newspaper? No.

You don't just decide to be an astronaut one day because it pays well. These people were living their dream, they knew the possible consequence to living their dream, and paid the ultimate price. I would bet that they'd be telling us not to mourn too much over them if they had the chance.

Like they say when people complain about innocent people die in a war: "It's war.".

Well, "It's space."

the homeless guy is living his dream too. he always wanted to eat somebody else's leftovers from a dumpster. and then he died of exposure because he had no where to stay, because all of my tax dollars went to fund ASTRONAUTS BLOWING THEMSELVES UP IN OUTER FUCKING SPACE!!!!

hehe ok. maybe i'm going a little overboard.

I feel bad for those astronauts cause they were DELIBERATELY killed. What?!!!! Yes indeed. If anyone is interested, I could share some interesting thoughts on what happened, though most of you think I'm already a nutball  :tongue:

Personally I thought the deaths of seven kids, who died in an avalanche over the weekend in Canada was just as tragic.  Americans didn't notice.  :mad:

Yeah I heard about the avalanche, though they weren't exactly kids. They did everything right, all were experienced "snow predictors" but shit happens. Same with the astronauts, just happened to have the worst kind of luck.

:ooo:  They were all 15 years old, Grade 10.  Two weeks earlier seven adults died in the same area, that might be the news you heard. 

The astronauts died like heroes, IMO. 

When I go, I want to have a cool death like that... :grin:

*** WARNING! OPINION ALERT!!! ***

The Illuminati are all over this one. Like in Sept 11. they left their numerological signature on this disaster:

The number 16 closely rooted with this event.

- shuttle launched Jan 16
- scheduled for a 16-day mission
- shuttle was supposed to land at 9:16 am
- exaclty 16 minutes before landing, all contact was lost.

and those are just from reading a summary from any newspaper or internet site.

The primary objective of the Mission were not performing experiments that would benefit mankind like the mass media would like you to believe. This was the first flight in a LOOOOONG time that has not gone to the Hubble Space Telescope, or to the International Space Station. This flight was in low-earth orbit, coincidentally flying over Iraq. And guess who was one of the austronauts? An Isreali military hero who fought many times in Iraqi soil. He knows that land like the back of his hand. The primary objective of the mission was to take reconissance photos of "planted" weapons of mass destruction, in order to justify the US to go in, and hence the need for the Isreali soldier. Why not use a satellite instead? Satellite transmissions can be intercepted, so this needed to be a manual job. After all the photos needed were taken, and a few experiments performed, the evidence (being the 7 astronauts) needed to be destroyed because if something like this ever got out, all hell would break loose for the US government.

These Illuminati or Free Masons, are into human sacrifice and numerology. (BTW, almost every American president including Abe Lincoln, to George Bush Jr/Sr. is a Free Mason.) Their main goal is to setup a One World Government, Sept 11 was also their doing.

Plz sir, refrain from your insults. Did you not read the disclaimer?

The NRO is constantly takes satellite photos all over the globe. They could watch you drive to work if they wanted to. Reconnaisance photos from a space shuttle would be utterly useless.
