Even in the past few years you'd have a good skit appear once every few episodes on SNL, then pretty much since the pandemic it's been unwatchable dogshit. Maybe the one good writer died.

If there's a moderately popular bit, Lorne will get a film going.

I'm surprised they didn't find a way to do a cowbell movie.

its tailed off a ton

like blues brothers was 1980 and macgruber was 2010 and those were the real outlier timewise

between like waynes world in 92 and the ladies man in 2000 there were like 8 of them in the mid 90s

it went from being like 1 a year to like 1 in 20 years

the mission the shuttle was for, to cheaply put satellites up in orbit, was impossible because refurbishing a plane that comes back from orbit is expensive and also the thing was a deathtrap that exploded all the time

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Shuttle_design_process#Air_Force_involvement

quote:

The Air Force also hoped that a shuttle could retrieve Soviet satellites and quickly land.

The shuttle was a compromise because the Air Force got involved and they insisted on a space vehicle that could capture russian spy satellites and bring them back to earth for analysis. So NASA scrapped the Apollo program before they got any big ideas about building a moon base and the shuttle turned out to not be as useful as was promised

Bideo James posted:

why did we abandon the shuttle system?

building a reusable manned vehicle as a "space truck" to put random commercial satellites into orbit and then retrieve damaged commercial satellites so they could be repaired and relaunched turned out to be a really dumb idea that no one actually wanted

and making considerable design compromises so that the military could use it, only for the military to not actually want to use it after all, only made things worse

to make things even better, the whole project was based on a reusability level and turnaround rate that turned out to be wildly unrealistic

like, when the shuttle was originally built, NASA was talking about retiring every other US rocket design and performing literally all space launches using shuttles, which they expected would be able to launch every week or two. the real launch rate ended up being more like every three months. which also made it a lot less cost-effective because they were getting a lot fewer launches for the money they spent on each orbiter

but they couldn't just toss it out as soon as they realized all that, because just building it at all was such a budget struggle and the political cost of abandoning it would be too high. so NASA management plunged deep into denial and chose to struggle along with the shuttle, regardless of its problems, until it finally killed enough astronauts to generate political support for replacing it

SpaceX was hosed from the jump because it turns out that the entire impetus for the space race was to develop bombs that could make it all the way to Russia/China and you canít reuse bombs.

Also military leaders and contractors are joined at the hip so they are financially motivated to waste as much hardware as humanly possible. Which is why the average service life of a humvee in Iraq/Afghanistan was like 25 minutes. You donít make money by re-using poo poo.
