Americans use Rockets, Aussies use Balloons. Fail.

The Aussies thought it would be cool to get into this who astronomy and space thing after hearing Obama's speech on Mars and Bob's thread on the fake moon landing. They put their best scientists to work to build a highly advanced piece of technology. They built a large telescope. Then they decided to hook it up to a huge 400 foot balloon. The attempted balloon telescope launch unexpectedly came loose, destroying a multi-million payload. Did I mention it almost killed a couple of people? Leave it to the U.S., Russia, and China guys, you can't join the cool club just like that.

At least they didn't try to go to the moon in a balloon. That would have been funny.

I know where your coming from. I naturally like to think that Americans are the best, even though we're probably not. Nothing wrong with patriotism.

Patriotism is good, ethnocentrism is bad.
