    Im glad people understand that NASA is a joke and that if we are going to learn as much as possible about space we got to do it our self. even if nasa did do it the info of what they found would never see the light of day.

    Ahhhhh come on and be fair! NASA creates some of the best bottle rockets we've seen this year and what they can't build, the fund somebody else to!

    Honestly, in the early days NASA was tremendous. They took a presidential challenge to heart and pulled this nation together better than anyone else could have. If we had a president that had the vision raw courage that Kennedy had, just imagine where we would be today.

    Besides, if they need to get a selfie now days, all they need is to get on that Russian web site .... they got plenty of them; probably yours too!

    Ten year wait? I'd suggest that if exploration of a desolate and lifeless environment are the criteria, EverBank Field is a whole lot closer and cheaper. It's not as if the time capsule would be crushed under the weight of expectation.

    These "crowd sourced projects", are the "squeegee men" of the tech industry .

    Some days you just want to drive home in peace, without some a****** trying to clean your windshield, have a bucket shoved in you face for some megalomaniac preacher's shelter, (which happens to be in another state), or some 9 year old pounding on a pair of snare drums, without rhyme, reason, or rhythm, collecting for some nameless drum line scam.

    Them's the facts of, "grass roots crowd sourced funding". Now excuse me while I roll up my window, and flip a few people the bird...:mad:
