Space science or Muslim outreach?

IMO it's Lunar Colonization, which will embed restoration of US manned spaceflight capability.

Since India is the only Islamic nation with significant space capability, India can do all the reacing out it wants. We need to get back to the moon.

I am confused about the poll myself. I think it is some kind of Xenophobia where by the fear is the muslims will colonize the moon before America?

The poll isn't complicated.

All you have to do is click on the one radio button that most closely matches your opinion of what NASA should be doing with US taxpayer dollars.

You do know how to click a mouse, don't you?

If you could tell us what the hell muslim outreach means, i'd be happy to cast my vote, as i feel doing so without fully knowing the meaning of the other options which may better suit my preference would be stupid.

Y'all are not aware that President Obama told NASA to make "reaching out to the Muslim world" one of its top priorities? There's a thread about it on DP.

I can't vote in this poll because there's no "other."

I think NASA's primary mission should be deep-space sex research. :mrgreen:

Hello?

How about if you ask Chuck Bolden, NASA Administrator, what that phrase means.

Since you're certain what it is, why are you considering it as a poll option? Do you think international diplomacy is the proper task for a bureaucrat appointed to head the world's premier aerospace agency?

I was asking you to tell me what it meant. You didn't clarify what exactly Muslim outreach meant. You assumed, however, that we did.
Goshin was kind enough to inform me.
Thanks Goshin.

Sorry, that is not a description of what "muslim outreach is". In you look closely, you can see the use of the words "reaching out" and "Muslim". Hence, it is not a definition, merely a restatement.

But I'm glad you found a phony way to save face.

Can you now discuss the topic?

I voted for "Lunar Colonization".

Because really, colonizing the moon would require "Restoring US Manned Spaceflight Capability", so that's redundant.

After that, in this order:
  1. Deep Space Exploration
  2. Near Earth Monitoring via Satellite
  3. Martian Colonization
  4. Muslim Outreach

I am unable to vote truthfully because 'Other' was not an option.
However Redress stated the only way anyone should vote.
They do whatever their Boss tells them to do.
If they are disatisfied with whatever that is, they can always perform the honorable act by resigning.
