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.
