The True Believer At NASA.

The US and India will be cooperating on India's first mission to the moon. (Here.) Curmudgeon's Corner quickly noted his approval (here) and we share that view. Politics does not stop at the atmosphere's edge and it's in America's security interest to move closer to India.

What is striking about the announcement of the US-India cooperation is the statement by NASA boss Michael Griffin:
"It is my hope and belief that as we extend the reach of human civilization throughout the solar system, the United States and India will be partners on many more technically challenging and scientifically rewarding projects."
That bit about extending human civilization into space could be boilerplate spacer rhetoric, but it doesn't seem so. The guy seems to be a true believer.
