OK, I know we all like to give NASA a kicking for possibly/probably hiding things from us but I have created this thread to bring out the positives of what they have brought us. And no Im not a disinfo agent but someone who recognises some good things they have given to us...

I'll start off with my favourite which is the Hubble telescope. Who else could provide us with such amazing pictures such as these.

Nebulae and Galaxies



The HELIX Nebulae



TITAN chasing its shadow



Gas Pillars in Eagle Nebule



Theres many more pictures and if your interested heres a link

hubblesite.org...

Whats your favourite thing about NASA and the greatest achievments you think they have brought us...

Indeed, NASA has discovered great things over time, and will continue for years to come. As science keeps progressing, more and more discoveries are in the horizon.

I agree NASA as caught a lot of flack for hiding things from the public, and people need to appreciate what NASA has come to offer us in the long run.

Good on you, Booda!
The NASA bashing on this site is ridiculous.
It's like a pack mentality.

exactly - I watched a documentary last night on the Gemini missions and was amazed how they sent man into space several times beofre attempting to go to the moon....they showed video clips of them walking and I found it amazing...footage from all those years back showed how remarkable the gemini missions were....

Looks like only a few of us find some positive sides of NASA and most just like to give them a beating....

You know.......why don't you start an anti-NASA thread & see what happens?
I reckon you'll get all the usual suspects. They'll all swarm over here from the aliens & UFO's forum. Or maybe you should put it there. You can get yourself some more flags for the dopey new flag award system.

no problem - just goes to show that some people probably dont know about these facts but tend go on the offensive and follow what others say and do.... they are the ones that call others sheeple when they themselves are sheeple....
