Obama's Foremost Goal for NASA
What do you suppose President Obama would specify as the foremost goal of NASA? Something related to space, perhaps? Don’t be silly.
Quoting NASA Administrator Charles Bolden:
When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- [Obama] charged me with three things ... 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...
Obviously, what NASA really needs to do is find ways to boost the self-esteem of Muslim nations.
Is it too much to ask for junior-senators-turned-presidents to know what NASA actually is?
