NASA + Wikipedia = OpenLuna

,----[ Quote ]
| "Space: the final frontier." The folks at the 
| OpenLuna project take that line to heart. 
| OpenLuna is an open source, wiki-based attempt 
| to design a leaner, meaner, public driven moon 
| mission. As with any open source project, they 
| encourage everyone to participate. When they 
| run into questions, problems and challenges, 
| they pose them to the crowd and invite people 
| from every field to weigh in. 


What is OpenLuna?


Is Microsoft exploiting taxpayers to spread Silver Lie again see links at the bottom)?

NASA Partners With Microsoft for Student Web Design Competition

| In partnership with the Texas Business and Education

| pleased to invite Texas high school students to participate 
| in the bliink Web design competition.

| Bliink is a Web design contest (âContestâ) for students that 
| encourages them to dream big and to express their ideas while 
| building their technology skills. Student participants will design 
| and develop a Web site using Microsoft Expression suite of 
| software tools.


Microsoft is still exploiting and preying on NASA.

Interview: The Space Station's IT guys

,----[ Quote ]
| Have you ever had hackers infiltrating the
| ISS systems?
| "The software we use to interface with the
| ground is just a file transfer back and
| forth, and it would be a very difficult
| thing to do. The chances of someone hacking
| up into the station is pretty much non-
| existent and it has never happened. Even if
| they could, the laptops themselves do not
| have a critical function like life support.
| There is a set of laptops that do provide
| the crew with cautions and warnings, but
| from a daily standpoint the astronauts
| really don't use them -- the ground
| monitors everything for them."
