Germany – US dismantles NASA while the German Sharp rocket and Space exploration is gaining notoriety

Obama’s continues America on a path to the Third World, while Germany and even the third world advance toward space and knowledge.  Obama has made choices for this country that are Impeachable offenses.

Harrisburg, Pa – New Healthcare Plan WILL cover abortions – lying to the people and putting his signature to a promise that he knew would not be worth the paper it was written on.
Helena, Montana – Kindergarten SEX education is right out of the Kevin Jennings play book – Education CZAR, appointed by Obama, and who was the founder the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. – his czar appointments skirmish the will of the people and the constitution.  This action has resulted in agendas that the MAJORITY of Americans find reprehensible.
Obama’s speech on immigration reform – Is a confession to Treason – The betrayal of ones SOVEREIGN nation is an ACT of TREASON
“The Federal Reserve is not an agency of Government. It is a private banking monopoly……Americans have lost it all – sovereignty, rights, freedom, country, property, and law.”

I could keep going

Here are some lesser charges of Sabotage:

German scientists unveiled on Friday the key part of a flat-sided, re-usable space rocket they say would be much cheaper and easier to build than NASA’s space shuttles.

The German Aerospace Centre (DLR) is developing the cutting-edge rocket that can re-enter Earth’s atmosphere without breaking up or suffering much damage, making it an affordable and easy-to-build alternative to than NASA’s ageing space shuttles.

DLR scientists on Friday unveiled the 2.5-metre nose cone for the SHEFEX IIprogram, short for “sharp-edged test flight,” at the DLR headquarters inOberpfaffenhofen near Munich.

It will take its first test flight next March from Australia’s Woomera rocket launch site. A smaller and slower prototype, SHEFEX I, had a successful test flight fromNorway in 2005.

“Our goal is to create step-by-step a re-useable space glider,” said project leaderHendrik Weihs from the DLR’s Institute for Design and Construction Research inStuttgart.

The new model will be more heat-resistant, cheaper and, most importantly, easier to control in landing than any other type of launchable space craft.

The distinct angular nose cone has eight flat faces, which provide better aerodynamics and cheaper construction than the traditional round cone.

“The rocket therefore has nearly the aerodynamic qualities of a space shuttle, but it’s smaller and doesn’t need wings,” said Weihs.

The €12.5 million-program, funded entirely by Germany, is the only one of its kind – a rocket that can automatically guide itself back to Earth.

“We’re a pretty long way ahead,” said Weihs, adding that he hoped the project would father “a new generation” of rocket science.

NASA has decided to discontinue its space shuttle fleet, sparking a search for a replacement.

“But that system is very elaborate and very expensive,” Weihs said.

Normally, with ballistic capsules such as rockets, which are also used byRussian cosmonauts and Chinese taikonauts, the catch is that they cannot be controlled when they re-enter the atmosphere.

The DLR model, on the other hand, can be guided to a very precise point on Earth’s surface. That will be tested in Australia. The tricky part is controlling the craft as it descends from about 100km to roughly 20km altitude, after which it can be brought down by parachute to land in the desert.

“When the space craft enters Earth’s atmosphere, the air is very strongly compressed and grinds against the body of the craft.”

That can raise the temperature to as high as 10,000 degrees Celsius. The flat planes of the nose cone are specially prepared to deal with this, Weihs explained.

“With the new model, the heat on the planes is reduced. Only the apex will get extremely hot.”

To counter that heat, gas will be pushed through the porous material of the apex, acting as a buffer against the hot, compressed air.

Next year’s test flight will be unmanned, but with further funding, a manned flight is possible. Such progress could be made with co-operation from other members of the European Union or with the United States, Weihs said.

“First, the will has to be there,” he said.
