On February 5th 2017, NASA released this vid,





It features ISS astronots wearing the NFL jerseys of the Superbowl finalists.

People soon started pointing out that the last supply launch to the ISS was in Dec. 2016.

Back then it was not yet known which teams would be in the Superbowl.......

Then a few days later NASA released another vid from the ISS, showing the astronots unpacking the 32 jerseys of all NFL teams, that were supposedly already sent to the ISS back in 2016........

This vid can be found on this page,


www.collectspace.com...


I couldn't find it on YT on NASA's own channel.

Here's a direct link to the vid,

In the best case scenario NASA is wasting your tax payer money sending 32 football jerseys, footballs, bagpipes and monkeysuits up into orbit at a cost of $10,000 per pound.

With NASA having .5% national budget,

I'm very glad to see they're using it legitimately.

On another note, I first saw this as "Nasa sends NFL Jerseys to ISIS"

I lol'd

Plenty of money, it grows on space trees and NASA has plenty of them. /sarcasm

I think they should have sent them some Big Macs instead. Those burgers would be considered emergency essentials. They won't be able to eat the Jerseys in two years.

What science? The science studying the behavior of NFL jerseys in space?

Why don't you get lost in it.

Maybe sending them to ISIS would have been better, they would start arguing who should get them and shoot each other.

You recognise another point besides me pointing out the waste of tax payer money?

Why don't you tell me what that point is.

Sounds to me like that's the worst case scenario here. Perhaps the NFL even launched a few dollars NASA's way for the advertising.

Just interested... what are the other scenarios in your opinion?

its not my place to tell you the point of your own threads - you SHOULD know that yourself

but hey - to clarify :

is the point of this thread - and your ONLY objection to this news :

" your opinion that the money spent sending this payload to the ISS at an orbital altitude of 400km [ mean ] above the oblate spheroid we call earth was an inapproriate waste " ?

is that actually your sole position - are are you going to actually show your true colours ?

NASA is not sending this stuff into space.

The NFL doesn't need advertising like that. NASA does. NASA needs Joe Blow to believe.

In related news, NASA donated 32,000 pounds of Browns merchandise to the Sun.

Don't look NOW but there it is....the point of this thread is another pointless NASA never went to the moon thread and more than likely the Earth is flat thread....oh boy...at least its not politics. As for the jersey's going to ISS, its more likely to be a good morale booster to the astronauts who are separated for up to a year from Earth so why not give them a boost with a team jersey to wear during the big game ?

Yes, and?





so why not give them a boost with a team jersey to wear during the big game


Because of 100,000 dollar?

Well it cost around 25 billion for the Apollo Program and the eventual trip to the moon but hey...if it didn't happen then that is actually a savings of 25 billion so why are you so upset over 100 thousand ? NASA saving money and planting the seeds in Joe Blows minds....amazing....and only for a hundred thousand.

Omg, you actually think you are a Sherlock for picking up the obvious? The point was never hidden.

Aaron Hernandez jerseys!!

Too early prolly...

 


Well, a little too late. When space tourism starts up, anybody can take any jersey to space. Man U, Barcelona, Iceland, Boston Bruins, San Jose Banana Slugs, WNBA...

I am pointing out that it is a ridiculous notion that they would spend 100,000 dollars so that an astronot can get a moral boost by wearing a NFL jersey, like you suggested.
