Urban Myths at NASA

'Space nut' DeLay advises group how to lobby NASA, Houston Chronicle

"NASA has done a whole lot more than invent Tang," said Rep. Ted Poe, R-Humble, who also addressed the gathering. "Many people forget if aren't directly involved in" the space industry."

NASA JSC Reader note: "It's great that NASA has space nuts like Rep. DeLay and Rep. Poe supporting us, but it would be nice if they got their facts straight before advocating for us.NASA didn't invent Tang. We didn't invent Teflon or Velcro either."

Editor's note: Of course it would never occur to Legislative Affairs or PAO to correct these glaring misconceptions that members of Congress seem to suffer from.
