About 12 hours after this news hit, I suddenly encountered a barrage of "NASA is responsible for 9 out of 25 of the biggest innovations in the last 50 years!" stories on my usual news sites. Sounds to me like someone's scared... (And never mind that almost all of those were during the Apollo era, which is like 40 YEARS ago.)
