Earth-Info.Net is more than a little concerned by NASA's plans to develop nuclear propulsion systems for long-range space exploration.
Earth-Info.Net is concerned because 2 of the last 100 space shuttle flights have ended in disaster - despite the most thorough + expensive safety procedures of any human enterprise.
With 1 shuttle flight in 50 going catestrophically wrong, Earth-Info.Net fails to see how non-essential space exploration can justify the risk of a third shuttle exploding in our atmosphere and contaminating vast swathes of the planet with a nuclear cargo.
