When NASA has to rely on cheap tricks for attention

I've always wanted to go into space, and I've been a fan of the space program. The problem is NASA hasn't accomplished anything with manned space travel since the 1970's. The International Space Station isn't breaking new ground and is requiring repairs every trip up.

Yahoo is reporting that NASA is sending up Luke Skywalker's light saber. Instead of making progress in space to justify their existence they are willing to become a joke with this dog and pony show. There was a time when NASA was a government agency that actually was successful and something to be proud of, now it's a sideshow.
