Griffin on Kibo

Posted: 07:13 PM ET

This is a big milestone for the space station program. The Japanese built Kibo laboratory will greatly add to the scientific potential of the station. So far, the station has not generated much good science. It takes two people just to run this 900,000 lbs orbiting ship – leaving only one person to mind the lab. Kibo lays the (way-above-the) ground work for doubling the crew size of the station from 3 to 6 next year.

"If you have got a crew of six," Griffin told me, "four of those people can be involved in doing research which is why we are building it in the first place."

900,000 orbiting ship....that just sounds so amazing that it's even in space...900,000lbs!!
Miles, what kinds/types of research are they doing now? what types/kinds do they project to be doing once this new lab is up and going?

Seriously, a updated modified version of Skylab with an old Saturn 3rd stage for boost and we are on our way to Mars!

What is the timetable for expanding the ISS crew to six? Will that entail having a second Soyuz "lifeboat" permanently attached to the ISS? Will the stuck solar panel rotator joint have any impact on the crew expansion? Are there any plans to lengthen the time a crew stays at the ISS to more closely simulate the zero gravity effects of a trip to Mars?

As Freeman Dyson put it on Charlie Rose, Space Station is welfare.

Where the money went ? (Quotes from Lubos Motl, the string theorist)

"The climate science, something that the U.S. spends 6 billions USD per year for" -- "I would answer that it is a big scale organized crime"

We could have had an outpost on Mars !

They really should have some lasers to protect themselves from the greys and reptoids.

I want to eat reptoid burgers at McDonald's.
Hope the Greenies do not put reptoids on the species endangered list
