Last year it was scandal when President Obama decide to interrupt the NASA Shuttle program STS (Space Transportation System) due uncontrolled spending which went far away from  the original budget established in 1981, when NASA had estimated that the program would cost $7.45 billion ($43 billion in 2011 dollars, adjusting for inflation) but the real price went orbital when the Per-launch costs can be measured by dividing the total cost over the life of the program (including buildings, facilities, training, salaries, etc.) by the number of launches.
With 134 missions, and the total cost of US$192 billion (in 2010 dollars), this gives approximately $1.5 billion per launch over the life of one of the most extraordinary and valuable NASA program.

Then because of the great accomplishments and remarkable contributions the STS Shuttle did also as the only one Space Transportation till now, for more at least of 5 scientists at once, without consider the expenses, media spread the word that NASA will close or even disappear.
Commercial TV networks and general media still don’t get to know what NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is really about..

Within 15 locations between facilities, laboratories and Space Centers available to visitors; the leader in Space exploration in the world NASA is a scientific research institution about uncountable  sectors such as:  Aeronautics: pioneers and creators of new flight technologies that improve the ability to explore the space, which also have practical applications on commercial air transportation.

Human Exploration and Operations are focuses in the International Space Station beyond low Earth orbit.
In Science: explores the Earth, Solar System and the universe beyond; and reaps the benefits on Earth and space exploration for society.In the early 21st century, NASA reach spans the universe.

Right now NASA finest teams are getting ready for extreme training in the deep Ocean in Florida. NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO) missions will continue on June 11, 2012.

NASA Extreme Enviroment Mission Operation

It will build on lessons learned from 2011’s NEEMO 15 mission and test innovative solutions to engineering challenges allowing astronauts in the exploration on asteroids.

¡ La NASA está que Arde!

US National Aeronautic Space Administration

SU-O1 Mayo 2012 -.(Fotos cortesía de NASA)
El año pasado se desato un escándalo cuando el presidente Obama decidió interrumpir el programa Shuttle deNASA STS (Sistema de Transporte Espacial) por el gasto descontrolado del presupuesto original establecido en 1981 en el que NASA había estimado que el programa costaría $ 7,45 mil millones ($ 43 mil millones en el 2011, ajustando por la inflación), pero el precio real estuvo fuera de órbita, cuando los costos por el lanzamiento se midieron entre el costo total  del programa (incluidos los edificios, instalaciones, capacitación, salarios, etc) y el número de lanzamientos. En 134 misiones el costo total fue de $ 192 mil millones (en valor del 2010),  aproximadamente $ 1.5 millones de dólares, por cada misión en el transcurso del valioso en todos los sentidos “Shuttle STS” programa.

Shuttle Program 1981-2011
Space Transportation System

Precisamente por lo espectacular que fue el único programa de transporte espacial para más de 5 científicos y todos los alcances que logro, sin contar los excesos en el gasto, los medios de comunicación especularon que la NASA y no (Un Programa como fue el STS)  estaría desapareciendo.
Es increíble que con tanta apertura al público por parte de la NASA los medios de comunicación en general todavía no sepan lo que es realmente esta dependencia gubernamental Norteamericana NASA.

“Mission Complete, Houston”

The beginign of STS

SU-O1 Fl. 2011) “Mission Complete, Houston” … Were the words of Major Ferguson, reported to Mission Control Station in Houston, on the last flight of the Program Space Transportation System (STS) Shuttle, when the spacecraft “Atlantis” achieves the soft landing in Cape Canaveral, Florida, and thus seals the end of the STS Program at the NASA Space Agency

Shuttle Program 1981-2011
Space Transportation System

The last mission of the Space “Shuttle” on the flight vehicle 33 of the “Atlantis” was to deliver more than 9,400 pounds in parts and other equipment along with 2.677 pounds of food and enough supplies for a year for researchers in different expeditions working in the International Space Station.

NASA Space Vehicles

Any other space program in the world has been able to transport the amounts of materials to build or resources for human survival as it did in its 30 years of service.

Without falling importance of the previous Human Space Flight Missions, such as Mercury (1959-29630) Gemini (1963-1966) Apollo (1961-1972)  the first one to bring human life in the Universe and a walk on the moon, Skylab (1973-1974)  To build the first American Space Station, that countenances the STS “Shuttle” mission to enlarge and alliance that Space Station to the International one.

the Space Transportation System (STS) which stared functions in the 70’s and it materializes on April 12, 1981 with the launch of the first reusable spacecraft capable of carrying 7 or 8 astronauts in multiple orbital flights on and back return to Earth.

Dr. Ellen Ochoa

In total 5 vehicles flew 852 times with a distance of 542 million miles in 135 flying around the planet for 1329 days, achieving over 2,000 performing experiments in the fields: of our planet, Astronomy, Life Sciences and Matter.

The Space System Transportation, STS also featured a great diversity of talented Scientist that include several women and from almost one of each country in the 30 years of function.

The Space System Transportation, STS also featured a great diversity of talented Scientist that include several women and from almost one of each country in the 30 years of function.Aside of the Astronauts well training by NASA; as Mission Commander, Pilot and Mission Specialist, the Shuttle Program opened a door for Payload Specialis.

@ NBL Houston Tx.

A Payload Specialist was generally selected for a single specific mission and were chosen outside the standard NASA astronaut selection process  and 61 of them flew to the Space as part of the prestigious crew in the 135 launches, without being American Citizens, and some of the where from Mexico, South the Arabia and other Countries and professions like Congressmen, teacher and other not scientist profession.

Frankling R.Chang Diaz

Note, this program generate more interest in science to thousands of professionals around the world adn were selected by NASA  several Hispanics where in the orbirter more thatn one time and all fo them had an important contribution as Colonel Sidney M. Gutierrez (2 ª. Generation Mexico-American descent) who participated in 2 missions, Dr. Ellen Ochoa (2 ª. Generation Mexico-American descent) who participated in 4 missions in the STS Programs.

Ing. José Hernández

The brave crew who made history in the last flight was the Commander Christopher Ferguson, Co-Pilot Douglas Hurley, and Mission Specialists Rex Walheim and Sandra Mangus. They also carried during the last mission as a backup plan a small Russian Soyuz capsule in case Atlantis had some flaw in his return to Earth.

STS Atlantis last landing

The three orbiting spacecraft that made history in the Space Transportation Program Shuttle will be on display at the Visitor Complex for NASA, “Discovery” is the hangar of the Smithsonian in Virginia, “Endeavour” will be at the Science Center in Los Angeles California and “Atlantis” will be at home in the Visitor Center Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral Fl.  STS Was close but not the era of the Space exploration…

A Great and Productive Program
