Astronaut_Suicides_Neil_Dacosta_14

Sara Phillips, Neil Dacosta and Saskia Thomson created this series of startling images portraying the suicide of United States astronauts after the dissolution of the NASA space program by Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush. We have to ask ourselves what will happen to these brave men and women who sacrificed much of their lives for the betterment of humankind now that they can no longer go to space.

    Now…you do realize that NASA still exists right? ¬†They still do manned missions (to the space station) and there are plans for a replacement for the space shuttle.

    “…dissolution of the NASA space program by Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush”…what kind of drugs are you using? The shuttle is the *only* program that has come to an end. NASA is still going, business as usual.

    Uhm…what betterment of mankind are you talking about? If you can name a single scientific advance made through manned space flight that I can’t top advances made by unmanned missions I’ll give you real money. Or promise to.
