Quote# 2483

Where all the Columbia Space Shuttle astronauts fully qualified for their jobs, having been placed there because they were the best at what they did? Or were they there because of political correctness diversity idiocy? And if so, was this partly or entirely responsible for the space ship disaster???

Suggesting that the Colombia exploded because there were too many minorities onboard...eeew.

this guy is just pissed because, unlike going to the movies, he didn't get to actually see the black guy get killed first.

This belongs on RSTDT.

And this poster's conjecture is reprehensible on multiple levels.

This should be on RSTDT.

They were there because they were qualified. Whereas you can't even tell the difference between \"where\" and \"were\"

You did NOT just go there.

Our astronauts are HEROES. They put their lives on the line "for the benefit of all," just like our firefighters. All you do is spew hateful filth across the internet, so don't you DARE talk to me about the qualifications of the astronauts.

I'm certainly no expert on astronauts, but even I know that it takes years and years and years of hard training, both physical and mental, to even be considered for a space trip. That diversity you are spouting, nah, not so much. How many percent of space travellers have been women? How many percent of humans are women? Are they corresponding?

We in Sweden are very proud of our one and only astronaut (so far), Christer Fugelsang. He trained for at least 14 years before he was allowed to travel.

The disaster happened due to poor maintenance. A piece of foam insulation came off the main fuel tank and hit the left wing insulation. Upon re-entry, with no insulation, the heat just melted the wing from the inside, eventually melting the entire thing from inside. Thanks to the massive energy generated from the friction with the air, it effectively exploded.

The only possible way political correctness could have had something to do with the shuttle disaster was if someone incompetent had worked on the OUTSIDE OF THE SHUTTLE. God, you people are so stupid.

Yeah, yeah, just go bone your sister before the scary dark skinned man in a hoodie comes to steal her away.

The problem arose outside the shuttle, you moron, and therefore was not any fault of the crew inside. Or would you argue that, unlike Columbia, Apollo 13 survived a near-catastrophe because the crew on board were all white?

Yes, it was all part of our plan to...wait, what? This doesn't make any sense.
