Maybe the Jerk-In-Chief could order them into Sysia to show how much America loves Islam. Recall his head of NASA talking about the agency's need to promote Islam? NASA is lost under the Boy Messiah.

Actually the King James version was translated in 1611, that would make it 401 years ago.

Decades ago, it was obvious to NASA that the best & most efficient science was best performed by unmanned spacecraft. However, to excite the gov't funders & the public, ya had to kill some astronauts once in a while.

NASA got fed up with a public & know-nothing legislators, who wouldn't get involved with spectacular science performed by superlatively designed excellent spacecraft, without 'bodies with the right stuff', along for the ride.

Note: the ones complaining about NASA are the ones 'with the right stuff', but not the scientists. The scientists are involved in the obscure but spectacularly performing & long enduring missions that pour out so much science, that Earth Base often only have time & money to store the data, but NOT do real science with it.
