The Biggest Mistake in the History of NASA: when NASA debunked Apollo 18

NASA collaborates with hundreds of filmmakers every year.  They’ve partnered with Pixar to have WALL-E teach kids about space, they helped produce 1986’s Space Camp (the single greatest false advertisement ever made), and they even signed off on Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the other summer movie about aliens on the moon. space science universe and space station alien science

For some reason, NASA felt the need to distance themselves from Apollo 18. space science universe and space station alien science

Imagine, for a second, America’s reaction to the news that there are murderous space spiders on the moon.  Within a week, the House Republicans would have condemned President Obama’s failure to act quickly to protect us from the space spiders.  Democrats would have countered that the spiders were discovered during the Nixon Administration.  One thing we could all agree on: let’s give NASA whatever it wants to protect us from these bastards. space science universe and space station alien science

The equation they forgot is one of the most basic in American politics: FEAR = FEDERAL FUNDING.  Since the tragedy of September 11, 2001, the budget for America’s intelligence services has nearly doubled to $52,000,000,000 per year.   The Homeland Security budget went from $0 in 2001 to $43,000,000,000 last year.   Some people think those expenses are justified.  Others don’t.  Regardless of your opinion, those numbers tell you that when America is afraid, we’re willing to spend. space science universe and space station alien science

NASA, you had a massive ad campaign telling people that you found monsters in space – the one thing that could have guaranteed your funding forever – and you shot it down.  Did not one of you read Watchmen? space science universe and space station alien science
