A Better Slogan?

Loretta Hidalgo Whitesides thinks that the on-line community can help NASA come up with one.

<VOICE="Alice">Must...stop...fingers...of satire...</VOICE>>

Hey, there's always the comments section.

And yes, I have emerged, blinking and confused, from SBIR proposal hell. Thanks for asking.

Are small business set aside contracts with the government consistent with a libertarian ideology?

Though I fail to see the relevance to this post.

This isn't original with me, but I like it:

"NASA. Where we grab the future and give it a big, wet, sloppy kiss."

I'm soooooo shocked that they have never adopted that particular slogan. {grin}

For reference, the previous NASA slogan, under the previous Administrator (new Administrator, new slogan) was “Explore, Discover, Understand.”

Actually, O'Keefe's favorite slogan was "Only NASA can."

According to Google, that slogan appears over 2000 times on the NASA website. "Seeing Hurricanes As Only NASA Can... Inspiring the Next Generation of Explorers As Only NASA Can... Decorating bulletin boards As only NASA Can..."

“Explore, Discover, Understand.” appears only about 300 times.

How about "No Space For the People"? It would accurately reflect NASA's mission.

"NASA: If we won't do it, it can't be done."

Well I think to give the young people something to talk about they should incorporate some type of MP3 capability into Orion.

"Like, that's the first time man has landed 1 terabyte of the Billboard top 100 on the lunar surface. And because it sits like, on the mooon, we can download DRM free from it all day long."

Which makes me think of:

NASA commercial scene 1 take 1....ACTION!:

*Astronaut climbs down into crater heavily lit at the rim by huge lights*

*Turns and slowly reaches hand out*

*Queue shot of enormous black Ipod*

*Astronaut touches play button and Chemical Brothers remix of 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' booms*

*Rave dancing astronauts with glow sticks*

*Cut to astronauts playing lunar volleyball with moon rocks*

*cut to Lunar rover Nascar races*

*cut to astronauts sun bathing clanking beers together feed to helmets via tube*

*cut to a gang of NASA astronauts beating up on that damn punk ass astronaut from MTV*

*cut to handsome male astronaut spanking young female astronaut as they walk into lunar hab module, **winks at camera**

*Cut to NASA logo: "We R flo8ting fo reel, LoL!"
