We know NASA has had a cuts in it budgets. The answer, NASA is teaming up Chrysler for a 3yr partnership. This seems like a very interesting deal, it kind of opens the imagination to think outside the box as NASA likes to do or used to do.

Chrysler Motors and NASA team up

Motor Authority article By Nelson Ireson April 13th, 2010

Building cars is a tough, tricky business--but it's not exactly rocket science. Or is it? NASA and Chrysler today announced a three-year partnership to share advanced technologies between the two entities, including materials, robotics, radar, battery systems and more.

Chrysler obviously plans to use the big brains at NASA to help improve their products across the Dodge, Jeep, Ram and Chrysler brands. NASA will also benefit from the technology sharing and development work, with the key area for use being space exploration.

This isn't the first time Chrysler's engineers have paired up with NASA. In 1961, the company built the Redstone rockets that sent the Mercury Project and the first American into space. In 1968, Chrysler built the boosters that powered the first two Apollo capsules into orbit as well, and continued to work with NASA through the early 1970s with the Saturn series rockets (pictured).

Who would benefit the most out of this relationship? I would put my money on Chrysler of course, as their reputation is in the tank for sticking with outdated technology. With partner like NASA one is sure to turn heads around, and I can not wait to see the end products that will be generated. Chrysler making lightweight vehicles, I didn't think that could happen.

Any guesses as to what those products might be? Take a stab in the dark your guess, it is as good as mine.

I wonder what they would come up with. Maybe we can finally get Jetson Age Flying Car we have been waiting for.

It does seem kind of odd, but again. Chrysler has a history with NASA. During the good ol' days they both shared a reputation that captured the heart of Americans and the patriotism.

This country definitely needs both patriotism and its heart back right now. I look forward to what they will come out with in the future. I think its a great decision and should lift Chrysler up from its sagging reputation.

Hey man, looks like we agree on something!!!

This is the type of partnership between the government and private industry, a blend of socialism and capitalism, that has the potential to be fruitful for the American people. We need more of this out-of-the-box thinking, and allocation of public (NASA) resources.
