    "Construction of test site A-2." built mainly by African Americans, and whites, hands in trousers

    If African-Americans can design and lead, go ahead.
    Remind about the differentiated tests of the US police for AA and Americans?

    NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) - ..., and 100% financed from the state budget

    It performs two important functions ... moves world science forward in space exploration and contributes to the growth of public debt SyShyA, which will ultimately lead to the collapse of the financial system ...

    NASA has existed for more than 50 years, and a large public debt of 4 years. I think if anything that saves the United States from a financial and economic disaster, this is just technology. The Americans are not stupid, they are not a crisis crisis, and they don’t stop financing science, because there is always a future. And in recent years, many space projects are funded not by NASA, but by private companies. This is a global trend, but in the USA it is developing at a particularly fast pace.

    People, why are we all the time so concerned about the national debt and other US problems? Life has shown that the numerous rumors about the untimely demise of the United States were and are, as a rule, "somewhat exaggerated." And this article is about a specific organization and its infrastructure and not about how bad the blacks are in the USA. By the way, they are better there now than the whites.
    It should be noted that both the technical level, the technical state of the infrastructure, and the equipment with smart brains and skillful hands at NASA are at a very decent level. The results look accordingly. And in this regard, Russia to this level still stretch and stretch.
    But in terms of squandering the state. funds allocated for the space industry and the frequency of launches of spacecraft to "nowhere" Russia is still ahead of the rest of the planet and does not seem to give up its primacy. Selective "weeding" of departments and organizations of the rocket-space industry after the money went down the drain is unlikely to help. Here it is necessary to dig deeper and seriously engage in the structural and systemic restructuring of this and all related industries, restore the prestige of the engineer, scientist and worker, and even feed these engineers and workers better, so that they do not fade into the same NASA.
    And those who have already managed to fade there to lure back with all their might. It's worth it. Otherwise, we will be proud of what was done during the Union. And it would be time already and with something of your own, if it hadn’t been said about GLONASS
