Not what JFK had in mind

"When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he charged me with three things. One was 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 ... and math and engineering,"

---NASA Administrator Charles Bolden

The Space Program which began as a quest to dominate the Soviet Union in science and technology and eventually morphed into mankind's most incredible accomplishment yet---traveling into space and sending spacecraft into the farthest edges of our solar system and beyond---in search of the beginning of everything---has now become no more than a public relations tool designed to win the hearts and minds of Muslim nations.

Just friggin' great...
