SpaceX  launch of Falcon 9 at Launch Complex 40 failed; Once again the News Industry has failed the American public.

SpaceX launch this morning exploded after liftoff with two satellites to be placed in orbit.

Again, news reporters and newspapers have again failed to do their job.

Federal taxpayers are entitled to know what billionaires like SpaceX paid the federal government for the use of federal property accumulated over FIFTY YEARS.

What did SpaceX pay for the use of federal property, intangible property like research and development, and engineering; and for tangible property like water, roads, electricity, sewerage, treatment, real property, (the flight looked like it flew over the Intracoastal Waterway) so how much was paid for overflying the ICW?

How were the payments calculated?  Who calculated them?   What manual or guidelines were used? The public demands answers. I demand answers. And I will not rest until I get the answers.

TheThe above is NASAs videotape of liftoff to explosion; not the SpaceX cheerleader version.

The Florida ibis — a wading bird

More than 160 white ibises are housed at the University of Florida’s new Wetlands Ecological Research Aviary in Gainesville. The ibis is about the size of a chicken and has a long, decurved bill and blue eyes. Researchers at the facility will help federal and state agencies and other wildlife managers determine safe mercury levels for wildlife, especially for wading birds in the Florida Everglades.

Wading birds like ibises and egrets fail to thrive when water levels are too high for wading birds to reach aquatic plants and animals.  Likewise, during periods of drought and water levels that are too low, the number of marine plants and animals diminishes.  Good ecology attempts to balance all needs to the extent that those responsible for water management can manage those resources responsibly.

ALL:  As of 6:23 PM EDT, I have posted 508 posts on this website, principally on upon the earth, water, land, some of the underpinning behind my book, “Florida’s Big Dig,” the story of the Intracoastal Waterway, from 1881 until 1935.”  Although I did not apply for the award my book was awarded the Rembert Patrick Award in 2008, for the best academic book on Florida history.  It has been continuously in print since 2007.  Recently,my publisher and Kinderbooks reached an agreement to publish the book as an electronic book, with all the bells
