Mars Science Laboratory

On monday NASA make a further attempt to land a robotic rover on Mars called the 'Mars Science Laboratory' total cost is approximately $2,500,000,000 . Despite the excitement of the WELL PAID scientists working on the project and the media reporting on its progress it puts into perspective just how the American political mafia views its priorities.

If they are not sanctioning vast amounts on overseas wars , or the Large Hadron Collider at Cerne, or the International Space Station they are busy rubber stamping multi-billion dollar cheques for NASA to send a box of electronics to a dead planet just to see if it ONCE had life. The power elite who claim austerity at every corner seem to forget that austerity when these outlandish projects are being funded . These costs do NOT include the secret spending on military projects on new planes and various mass murdering machines that America's power elite seem so psychologically obsessed with.

We report almost daily on the present state of America and the vast swathes of its people that are struggling on the edge of life with the lucky ones living in trailer camps while the rest rot on its streets. Obama, like ALL of his predecessors, is NOT, despite his presidential speech seeking CHANGE has done nothing but instead has gone along with the enormous waste of resources that are NEVER going to improve the prospects of America's peasants.

Science and the enormous costs of outlandish projects have gotten completely out of control and only an enormous rebalance of priorities within the ruling political mafia in America will redirect those billions of dollars to projects that WILL make a difference to the long suffering citizens rather than to outrageous and unjustifiable spending on frivolous and absurd science .

Mars Science Laboratory

Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) is a robotic mission to Mars launched by NASA on November 26, 2011 that will attempt to land a Mars rover called Curiosity on the surface of Mars.Currently en route to the planet, it is scheduled to land in Gale Crater at about 05:31 UTC on August 6, 2012. Curiosity rovers' objectives include determining Mars' habitability, studying its climate and geology, and collecting data for human missions.

The Mars Science Laboratory mission is part of NASA's Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort for the robotic exploration of Mars, and the project is managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of California Institute of Technology. When MSL launched, the program's director was Doug McCuistion of NASA's Planetary Science Division. The total cost of the MSL project is about US$2.5 billion.
