Happy Birthday NASA - 50 Years of the Right Stuff

As the men and women of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration celebrate its 50th anniversary this month, Defense Department personnel also can take a bow for the key role they have played in lending technology and expertise to NASA's space exploration and research missions, according to Donna Miles of the American Forces Press Service.

Thanks for the story! In addition to the tangible accomplishments you mentioned, NASA also stimulated the entire technology industry (in particular, miniaturization and electronics) and helped improve industrial problem-solving methods that have spread far beyond the space program. NASA's imagination and ability also had a profound aesthetic and spiritual dimension, and helped inspire and uplift people's spirits throughout the world. <br> The space program and NASA directly and indirectly contributed greatly to nearly all our lives. Happy 50th, and thanks for the article.
