Let’s go to the moon, and other dreams barred by red tape. . .

February 10, 2009

A close family member will be attending a small dinner with a well-known astronaut next week.  Said family member wondered what the one question I would like to ask of this man who has previously walked on the moon.

Obviously my first question was one of skepticism: “Did you really walk on the moon?  REALLY?”  Always the conspiracy theorist.  Of course since that would have been entirely inappropriate, the better question is: “Why do you think NASA hasn’t been able to replicate its past success and innovation in the last few decades?”

Well apparently I am not the only one asking.  As heard on NPR, NASA formed a committee to ask this very question, with a surprisingly creative response.
