Taking Credit Where Not Due

Our favorite agency is once again in the news with a defective poll it seems. After offering the public a chance to vote on ten candidates for it's biggest accomplishment in Earth observations, GPS was picked as tops.

Of course, anyone knowing the real history of GPS knows it should not have been on the list in the first place. Except for some extremely subliminal role, the minions had no real role in it's development. As we all know, the Department of Defense deserves that credit.

Goes to show you how much the public knows about the space program. Not to mention the minions desire to promote truth.
