MORE EVIDENCE OF THE DECLINE OF OUR COUNTRY
Those citizens hoping for the return of our glory days of the past were given another taste of the reality of our decline on March 14,2016 when Europe and Russia launched a robotic exploration mission to Mars.
The mission title “ExoMars” stands for “Exobiology on Mars”
The mission includes two spacecraft, a Mars lander (Schiaparelli ) to develop the technology of landing on Mars and a Mars orbiter to search the Martian atmosphere for trace gasses important for life.
The only US participation was the contribution of radios used on a Mars mission ten years ago.
The radios were used on a Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission launched in 2005.
We have heard nothing about this from any of our country’s leaders (political, scientific, economic, media, etc.) Their silence says it all!
