    [Hail damages space shuttle's fuel tank] - February 27, 2007

    King of interesting, considering that it was [lightning last year] which caused the delay of Atlantis in late August.


    Given NASA's [new space policy,] is ["Manifest Destiny"] in trouble, do you think?


    This painting (circa 1872) by John Gast called American Progress is an allegorical representation of Manifest Destiny. Here Columbia, a personification of the United States, leads civilization westward with American settlers, stringing telegraph wire as she travels; she holds a schoolbook (not a Bible). The different economic activities of the pioneers are highlighted and, especially, the changing forms of transportation. The Indians and wild animals flee.

    NASA just held a live news conference, in which several reporters brought up the seeming "bad weather luck" recently, with respect to the shuttle program. One reporter even said, "I guess the locusts will be next."

    [Space.com article] Although hail has been a problem twice in the past for NASA, since the shuttle program began; I wonder, was there anyone who predicted that hail might SPECIFICALLY be a problem last year? Was there a person who mentioned it? Dare we link to this person's thread post?

    Have noticed lately that the shuttle has been delayed a few times now,due to the weather,so global warming is starting to affect us.Will have to build an all weather shuttle instead.

    [Fox News Report] - Monday evening's thunderstorms moved quickly and had winds of up to 60 miles per hour. The size of the hail was between a half inch and two inches and landed only at the NASA space center. [NWS Storm Reports 2-26-07]

    Are we ready to start calling this the curse of the space shuttle Atlantis?

    You can watch a replay of the hail briefing at [spaceflight.com,] and watch shuttle program manager [Wayne Hale] smirk about "theological arguments."

    If it's not a "curse," and it's not God, then please explain to "the people" what's going on? Please explain why NASA seems to be having so many weather related difficulties lately. Have a cup of coffee first Mr. Hale. Perhaps it will help to clear your mind, and our horizon.

    [Isaiah 28:]

    16 So this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
    "See, I lay a stone in Zion,
    a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
    the one who trusts will never be dismayed.

    17 I will make justice the measuring line
    and righteousness [the plumb line];
    [hail] will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
    and water will overflow your hiding place.

    18 Your [covenant with death] will be annulled;
    your agreement with the grave will not stand.
    When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
    you will be beaten down by it.

    19 As often as it comes it will carry you away;
    morning after morning, by day and by night,
    it will sweep through."

    The understanding of this message
    will bring sheer [terror.]

    Battered by an intense hail storm February 26, space shuttle Atlantis retreated off launch pad 39A and returned to the cavernous Vehicle Assembly Building on Sunday to undergo thorough inspections and repairs.

    The heatshield on the orbiter's left wing also experienced wind-blown hail impacts. Initial examinations at the pad revealed more than two dozen of the ship's black tiles sustained surface damage.

    "This constitutes, in our evaluation, the worst damage that we have ever seen from hail on the external tank foam," said Wayne Hale, the shuttle program manager. "We have had hail a number of times in the past, hail is not unusual in Florida. ... But usually the hail is quite small and rarely causes damage. [Link to Story]

    How about those sceince writers? Even they are calling St. NASA's rollback a "retreat."

    Is not ["ice cream,"] another way of saying CREAMED BY ICE?

    Definition of ["creamed."]

    6. Slang

    1. To defeat overwhelmingly: creamed our rival on their home court.
    2. To damage severely; destroy: My camera got creamed when I dropped it.

    Repairs are underway to the shuttle Atlantis. [Spaceflightnow video of repairs]
