NASA has for decades been a huge bloated ineffective bureaucracy that has become a parody of it's former self.

Richard Branson only did what NASA and the X15 did when I was a child. Not even classified as a sub orbital.
NASA should be at Mars by now. They need more money
Maybe the UK and the EU could chip in with money. After all, everybody has benefited from the past achievements of NASA. Maybe the whole world should ante up! It would be a huge waste tho. As I said; NASA is just another inefficient, bloated and woke bureaucracy.

I wish to extend my thanks to NASA, and the American people that funded them, so I may have non-stick frying pans

I also appreciate the people who made my non-stick pan possible: the Chinese for inventing the cast iron process millennia ago.

Properly seasoned cast iron, the original non-stick cookware.

Teflon was discovered 20 years before NASA coming into existence, so what kind of non-stick pans do you guys talking about?

I am very thankful of the genius Nazis that created NASA and the US space program and I'm sure that the millions of Jews, homosexuals and mentally ill who were exterminated are very thankful of it too

Well, the genius NAZIs didn't create NASA, but they were very instrumental in early booster design. And don't be so hard on von Braun. His goal in life was to send rockets to the moon. Don't blame him if the majority fell short and hit London. ;)

Just early booster design? four Operation Paperclip members were awarded the NASA Distinguished Service Medal in 1969: Kurt Debus, Eberhard Rees, Arthur Rudolph, and Wernher von Braun. Ernst Geissler was awarded the medal in 1973. Kurt Debus was even the first director of the Kennedy Space Centre!!! You had an award named after Hubertus Strunghold until 2013 who performed human experimentation. I don't think you realise how completely reliant NASA was on Nazis. Every President, including Kennedy, was fawning over them like they were great people when in fact they were murderers, mass murderers and human experimenters.

It wasn't just the US, the UK and USSR did it as well. In fact, whereas the US took 1600 scientists the USSR took over 2000

I am very well informed on the early days of NASA and the German scientists that surrendered to the Americans to stay out of the clutches of the Soviets. The Space Race has been a subject of interest for me longer than you have been sucking oxygen. I have a whole section of my library devoted to the subject. YOUR info is not quite correct. For example, Debus was not the Director of the Kennedy Space Center, he was the first Director of Flight Operations. He was in charge of the physical launch facilities. I do not believe that Hubertus Strunghold was performing human experimentation as late as 2013.

Kurt Debus was the first director of NASA's Launch Operations Center (later renamed as the Kennedy Space Center). From 1962 to 1974 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kennedy_S ... _directors

I also don't think Strunghold was doing human experimentation after the 60s

I'm not saying NASA hasn't done brilliant and exceptional things but it's basically German so Europe has already paid with knowledge and lives 😉

This might come as a shock to you, but there were a few Americans that gave their lives to fight NAZIs in WWII. So it's not just a European thing. I do realize you are a Euro Supremacist. ;)

And NASA has not been a "German" thing as you put it for over half a century! Even in the early days, the Germans were a small part of the engineering and science of NASA. I don't believe These people are German! ;)

And some of those Americans were ethnic Germans and Italians and Japanese.
