Satirical “Modern-day” NASA Space Camp is all too real…

The Onion posted a pretty sweet article about a “Modernized Space Camp” where kids can experience what it’s like to currently work for NASA.  Obviously, this isn’t real… it’s satire… and it is funny…however, the ultimate message is pretty depressing and all too familiar for us.

The Onion does a pretty good job of bringing to light the reality, not just for NASA, but all government funded research in America… Lack of funding is not only frustrating, but also counterproductive.  How sad is it that some of the best educated scientists in America are using their brain power “begging” for money instead of driving forward scientific innovation and progress!?
