Bye, Bye Space Shuttle. Hello, Muslim Outreach!

11 Mar

Go to the 1:00 point for the fun stuff!!!!

 

“NASA administrator Charles Bolden says President Obama has ordered him to pursue three new objectives: to “re-inspire children” to study science and math, to “expand our international relationships,” and to “reach out to the Muslim world.”  Of those three goals, Bolden said in a recent interview with al-Jazeera, the mission to reach out to Muslims is “perhaps foremost,” because it will help Islamic nations “feel good” about their scientific accomplishments.”

Reaching out to the Muslim world to better our relationships is all well and good, but for it to be NASA’s “foremost” priority is beyond ridiculous.

These statements led to former astronaut, Gene Cernan, to call for Bolden’s resignation.

I guess NASA will have more time to focus on bigger things, like Muslim outreach, now that Obama has killed the shuttle program.
