I am not at all surprised. NASA = National Aeronautical and Space Admininistration. Science does not function in the title. It is an Administration ie an orgainsation by administrators primarily for the benefit of administrators. That means it goes after big projects and big funding for their own sake. Nasa seems to often go beyond its turf - for example scooping up oceanic projects that are really on NOAA turf.

As pesimist as Jose is, I have to respectfully disagree, NASA has proven itself worthy of science and tech development. I was part of JSC during challenger program, and feel strongly that there is room for improvement, but any issues can be overcome, I have no doubt, so let focus and perfect methods for unmanned vehicles.

I worked for NASA for almost ten years before I left in disgust and frustration. Every single one of five different projects that I worked on was cancelled eventually, but only after spending millions. I saw fraud, waste, nepotism, and general corruption to rival any third world banana republic. Can America do this? YES. Can NASA do it? NO We need to start from scratch and build a new SPACE research system,and we should be very careful not to contaminate it with NASA.
