    What Should NASA's Highest Priority Be?

    Space science or Muslim outreach?

    IMO it's Lunar Colonization, which will embed restoration of US manned spaceflight capability.

    Since India is the only Islamic nation with significant space capability, India can do all the reacing out it wants. We need to get back to the moon.

    What is Muslim outreach? Throwing all the Muslims into space?

    I am confused about the poll myself. I think it is some kind of Xenophobia where by the fear is the muslims will colonize the moon before America?

    The poll isn't complicated.

    All you have to do is click on the one radio button that most closely matches your opinion of what NASA should be doing with US taxpayer dollars.

    You do know how to click a mouse, don't you?

    If you could tell us what the hell muslim outreach means, i'd be happy to cast my vote, as i feel doing so without fully knowing the meaning of the other options which may better suit my preference would be stupid.

    Y'all are not aware that President Obama told NASA to make "reaching out to the Muslim world" one of its top priorities? There's a thread about it on DP.

    I can't vote in this poll because there's no "other."

    I think NASA's primary mission should be deep-space sex research.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
