Shock Jock Howard Stern Comments on NASA and the Hubble Telescope

Last week I was listening to the Howard Stern Show, that broadcasts on Sirius Satellite Radio.  I’m not positive, but I believe it was broadcast on September 10, 2009.  Toward the end of the show during Robin Quivers News Segment, Robin discussed the Hubble Telescope.

Robin reported about the Hubble Telescope and the pictures that the telescope took of the “Cosmic Butterfly”  in space.  She discussed the trip that the astronauts took into space to repair the Hubble Telescope.

Howard Stern then commented on this NASA trip to space.  I’m not going to quote him exactly, I’m going to tell you what I can recall closest to what he said.  He basically said, NASA just spent millions of dollars to make this telescope better and all that NASA is doing is getting us pictures of gas in space.  He says, don’t get me wrong the pictures are very cool looking, but they are only gases in space.

What he said next shocked the hell out of me.  He said, NASA should just give up, there is nothing out there.  The only life is life on Earth and why is NASA spending so much money to take pictures of gases.  The money should be spent on something else.  He says he’s been saying it for years, but this was the first time I’ve heard it and I couldn’t believe it.

There is nothing out there.  I don’t understand how he could believe this.  He is the person that reads comic books.  Superman is one that comes into mind.  I know that he is very knowledgeable on this comic series.  It just shocked me when he said he didn’t think that there was other life out there.

I would love to hear his opinion on this topic.  Out of all people, I wouldn’t think that Howard Stern would be one of those that doesn’t believe in aliens or UFOs.  If he reads this or it is brought to his attention by one of his staff members, I would love to speak to him on this topic.  If he doesn’t want to speak to me, I hope that he discusses this on his show one day.  I’ll be listening and if it is brought up, I will report it hear on unexplainable.net for all of you that don’t have Sirius Satellite Radio.
