Felix Baumgartner Makes History!
Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier, Felix Baumgartner jumped from space making a perfect landing in the New Mexico desert near Roswell. He broke the sound barrier and several other records. John Hawkins, a Townhall commentator, wrote, "Red Bull has managed to put together a more effective manned space program than NASA." It might be a little unfair to nail NASA like that when NASA is run or manipulated by people who sometimes place politics above having a viable space program. With enough government interference any organization can cease to achieve much of anything, but NASA soldiers on where it is allowed, doing some amazing feats with the money they're permitted. But it's a new era. Private companies and individuals haven't given up on our space travel dreams!
