President Obama’s “foremost” charge to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden (as Bolden told Al Jazeera): “find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science… and math and engineering.” Just like President Kennedy’s charge to NASA 50 years ago…

By Asher Embry
Our heroes once were astronauts and NASA was our pride.
Barack now sees it differently, with other “missions” eyed.

We grew up with the Moon our goal, and space flight was our dream.
Now NASA’s chief priority is Muslim self-esteem.
