If you want to build the Automobile of tomorrow, you need people from the STEM fields (Science, Tech, Engineering and Math). If you want to build the computer of tomorrow, you need people from the STEM fields. If you want to build the planes of tomorrow, you need people from the STEM fields. If you want to build the powerplants of tomorrow, you need people from the STEM fields. If you want to build the city of tomorrow, you need people from the STEM fields. (do we see a trend here?)

How do you get students in America to beat down the door to those classrooms? Show them what these people can do. What better way to show them than to take them to see a Saturn V rocket at the Kennedy Space Center? ([Link: www.friedmanarchives.com...]

Or show them how we landed a car sized rover on Mars

Or just get NASA's accomplishments writ large in the media. Make our engineering Ambitions so enticing, so amazing, the students will be beating down the door to be Scientists, Technologists, Engineers and Mathematicians.

Sign the petition to spend a penny on NASA, not less than half a penny. [Link: www.penny4nasa.org...]

Kick in for the Fight For Space movie.

No problem, they will import said engineers from "socialist" (per how the GOP defines the term) countries that produce them.

re: #2 Destro

The problem is they don't want to come here anymore. They're busy building their own nations. Gee, how did that happen? India is launching pretty useless probes for money they can't afford and stirring up nationalism by announcing them on their July 4th equivalent. Result: they have Engineers that stay home and work on domestic projects. China's doing the same. I actually know Chinese who've moved back home because they see more opportunity and so they don't have to deal with the stupidity of things like what is happening in Kansas with their kids.
