The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is sixty today.
from Wikipedia:

The President Dwight D. Eisenhower established NASA in 1958[10] with a distinctly civilian (rather than military) orientation encouraging peaceful applications in space science. The National Aeronautics and Space Act was passed on July 29, 1958, disestablishing NASA’s predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). The new agency became operational on October 1, 1958

Happy birthday!  Now rollover and die.  NASA has accomplished her mission.  She got to the Moon and back.  There is no where else in the Solar System worthwhile for manned exploration, and no means to go beyond the Solar System.

Hat Tip: Instapundit.

  1. July 29, 1953 Eisencoward proposed the International Atomic Energy Commission speaking at the UN.
    How well did that work out?

    Eisencoward went on to plan using Nukes to blow a second canal across Columbia from ocean to ocean, completely disregarding how well that would work when tidal differences in sea level were factored in. 
    Eisencoward also ordered plans drawn up to use US Nukes in Vietnam to help France retain control.

  2. A sea level canal across Nicaragua maybe.  Columbia, never.

    I believe Ike hinted at using nukes in Korea.  He let the Norks believe he was considering it.  As for the Frogs in ‘Nam, lost cause from the beginning.  See French military victories, lack thereof same.
