Not A Space Agency (NASA backronymic nickname)

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has produced so much disinformation, in some critics’ opinions, that it has been given the backronym (back acronym) of “Not A Space Agency.” “Indeed. NASA - Not a space agency” was posted on the newsgroup sci.space.policy on November 25, 2004.

“Never A Straight Answer” is another NASA backronym.


Wikipedia: NASA
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA /ˈnæsə/) is an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States federal government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research.

LOL! - The acronym translation “Not A Space Agency” Is probably as close to the truth as we can get. As long as NASA exists in its present form, America will never return to the Moon, and commercial space access will be severely limited.
