I'd like someone to list the world's accomplishments in space and see how many of those are attributed to NASA, you'll find over half, not to
mention the thousands of spinoff technologies and companies directly a result of NASA R&D.
I laugh at that Virgin Galactic, it spent 90 seconds 62 miles above sea level, barely considered to be the lowest end of where space officially
begins, even though nothing can maintain an orbit that low. The NASA bashing is just a testament to ignorance on the subject.
Its also odd people use NASA data to discredit NASA, get your own data and get the rest of the world to start launching scientific probes throughout
the solar system and give us your findings then! The fact is since the moon landing space programs sole purpose was to launch satellites for
communication, military, GPS, and industry, except for NASA endeavors, outside of a couple countries now in the game in their infancies.
