I agree we need to go look more closely, and any excuse to goose Congress for money seems acceptable to me.
Fair enough and made me chuckle, I am not an expert and would agree you are far closer to that than most on the site, in fact you ARE an ACTUAL
expert in your field's and a reference source (Adviser) as well so you have my utmost respect and acknowledgment.
and I know that was a fringe source I proffered, half of there stuff is a bit too far off the path even for me and I am a believer that there is
something to be found but even if it just turned out to be a weird rock made up of a loss aggregate of weakly merged boulders left over from a debris
ring and covered in a fine dust to give it a seeming appearance of a single object it would still be a fine object to study and such a finding would
provide you insight into how such a moonlet may have formed under then natural condition's.
I just hope your OFFICIAL space program survives this period and the ensuing crisis it may cause for years to come with your government nearly as
divided as our own over in Blighty though likely ongoing budget arguments will at least affect the civilian program if not now then when the next
administration gain's power - we can hope not as for the US to regain it's lead in technology and science it really does need to fund these seemingly
civilian program's as they of course also have some very useful spin off's for both domestic and military application - and they need to keep a
tighter lid on some of there genuine secrets - not the type we all should know but the one's that matter to your nation's economic and defensive
capability's to ensure a stable base well into the future.
The problem there is that Corporations (that one of your greatest former president's and general's Eisenhower warned of) are NOT patriot's they go,
invest and take secret's even government one's were the profit is as they only thing they care about is there profit margin's and there shareholder
dividend's (SO while your current and previous administration's and perhaps any potential future one's are all in the pockets of the corporations it
may mean your nation will continue to suffer slow degradation as a result until they get back to proper government owned company's (even if they are
CIA front's and not officially owned and then only so long as the Government keeps a tight lead on the CIA) in order to remedy this.
So I truly wish the best of luck to you and your colleagues as even if we don't immediately benefit in time most of the development's of the space
program at NASA do filter down to the rest of the western world and a lot of them have made life much better for many people across the globe so of
course it is not always just about the rocket's but those spin off industry's and the discovery's to be made in the research with there potential
future applications in all walk's of life.
