The end of NASA is the beginning of Muslim self-esteem boosts
When the Space Shuttle Atlantis landed this morning it officially and sadly marked the end of this era of manned space flight in the US. There are 90,000 mission control and other specialists associated with NASA that now find themselves with nothing much to do. It's a good thing Obama has decided that NASA's new mission will be to make Muslims feel good about their imaginary contributions to the progress of modern civilization.
Maybe with the end of government-funded space missions, the private sector will step up and begin commercial space adventures. They'll certainly be able to do it for far less money.
