This is stupid and spiteful.
NASA could have kept its public Website up
during the Government Shutdown.
This is yet another example of the petulant behavior by petty government officials akin to closing down the open-air, free-to-all WW II memorial in D.C.
Yes, I fully understand that they might not have the resources to keep the homepage of the NASA public Website updated — though I again iterate, the buggers are going to get back pay, so why aren’t they back at work?
This is beyond the pale.
This is the clown in charge of NASA right now — Charles Bolden, and I do NOT see anything bold in his action. Just plain cowardice and bratishness. He should be ashamed of himself. He should be supporting the President. But, then again he seems to be way, way out of his depth. He should be fired along with the other scam-artist, Bryan Sivak, who is responsible for the crippled healthcare.gov JOKE.
Just last week, as reported here, NASA, yet again, screwed up, BIG TIME, and wasted $11 million dollars of taxpayer money trying to send up a simple weather balloon (BRRISON) to snap some pictures of my comet, Comet ISON, C/2012 S1 (ISON). They couldn’t get the telescope to unlatch. This was NOT rocket science. This was a helium weather balloon. $11 million. Wonder how many pockets got lined with that money. I could have successfully achieved that mission for under $800,000. But, then again, I am competent and have always been.
As we know NASA’s Website gets regularly hacked, because competence is not really a requirement to work at NASA. It was hacked just 3 weeks ago. Now we don’t even have a hacked site. Nothing. Deep empty space — probably just like the inside of Bolden’s balding head.
