Happy Birthday, NASA…belatedly

happy birthday nasa

For years I kept straight the names of all of my daughters’ dolls and stuffed animal friends — from the one that was always naked (Naked Baby Betty) to the floppy bunny who insisted on wearing his sneakers to bed (Falafel).

I even usually remembered which grades my nieces and nephews were graduating from, but birthdays? Yeah no, I’m no good at those.

NASA celebrated last week and, well, even though I wrote two pieces for Reader’s Digest and MSN News surrounding the big day, I forgot all about it.

So happy birthday NASA!

Here are the NASA sites space nerds absolutely need to visit and the NASA discoveries, like laptops and memory foam mattresses, that have helped to make our brief time on Earth that much more enjoyable.

Please share with your friends, family and followers
