How to save money on the Space Shuttle

See, the way I figure it, the space shuttle is really useless as a legitimate project of NASA anymore. The pundits seem to believe that our best science is really done on unmanned missions - like the Hubbell Telescope and the Mars Rover landing.

All we do anymore on manned missions is study the effect of weightlessness on ants or somesuch stuff. Apparently, the costs of these missions are insane. My idea is to send up Jeff Corwin or the Crocodile Hunter and have them study the effects of weightlessness on alligator wrestling - AND, we make it pay per view.

Can you imagine the drama of some dude getting bitten by a poisonous snake and having to make it 38,000 miles to dock with the International Space station - or getting bitten by an alligator and having to self-tie some sort of tourniquet. I would pay to see that shit, and I imagine so would a ton of other people - NASA could at least pay for a rocket booster that way.

You're welcome, NASA.

Very Truly Yours,

Kid Handsome

Reading comprehension = better.

Obviously, I'm advocating opening up space travel to non-traditional astronauts.

I'm all for a station on the moon where we can store all our moon crickets and other stuff. We just need a different ship to take us there. Until then, I want to see gravityless gator wrasslin'

Please tell me that you are not advocating a cut in NASA to support more funding for education...if not, carry on with your moon crickets.

I'm just talking about supplementing NASA's budget through use of entertainment.

Carry on.
