In March of 2009, I publicly lambasted President Obama for appointing an outer space fanatic to head NASA. The President called for another mission to the moon (yawn), but instead NASA bombed it for no reason. I got a lot of flack from the experts, including one commenter named “Basdv.”
Yet in response to my trenchant criticism (and NASA’s going off the deep-end), Obama changed his mind, basically eliminating NASA altogether. The space lobby even trotted out Neil Armstrong to make some statements, despite his suspicious identity. Without a manager, hopefully Houston will have another problem sooner than later.
UPDATE: Thousands of readers wrote in to condemn me for wishing that NASA would repeat the incident involving Jim Lovell. On the contrary, by “another problem” I mean an existential crisis for NASA itself.
