What does NASA stand for?

July 5, 2010

National Aeronautics and SPACE Administration.

Space.  Not social interactions or social interventions or self-esteem or even self-delusion.  Space.

So why has Obama charged NASA Head Charles Bolden with the following?

“One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.”

Why is NASA tasked with making Muslim nations feel better about their contributions to science?  WTF?  This is just absolutely insane.  I suggest that Muslim nations make some actual contributions to the advance of science and then they can feel better.  Why do we need to build up their self-esteem?

NASA should be building space ships and reaching for other planets in our solar system.  NASA should be studying our galaxy and galaxies beyond.  By all means, look for cooperative opportunities with other nations but maintain and advance America’s reach into space.

Doing that will accomplish goal #1 above.  When kids see men going into space, they will want to do the same.

Thanks to Michael Yon for the heads up.

    You are extreamly ignorant for making that statement but maybe there are a lot bigger reasons than you cold ever hope to comprehend…he’s the president of course he has a hidden agenda. He’s a good guy but he represents the American government..and when have they ever been up front about any fucking thing!!!!!! Lmfao!!
