I doubt it. I don't believe NASA is a company. It's an arm of the government.

In theory, yes.

In reality, no.

NASA is owned by the U.S Government, and they're too damn important to be controlled by one person. If he could buy it, he could buy anything. Honestly, i think NASA is the worlds most important organization.

Maybe in the future, yes.

But now, no

There is just too many more things that are fucked up at the moment that need more attention then space.

Serio. Honestly, i think NASA is the worlds most important organization.

And one of the worst managed and under funded IMO.

But really, if Billy G bought it, it would be a bad thing. Just imagine getting a BSOD just as your rocket or shuttles taking off?

Almost as bad as if he bought a nuclear silo. Right before launch, the nuke gets a BSOD and detonates. Bad stuff.

If a nuke got a BSOD at launch, it would probably just idly plop on the ground. Such missiles aren't detonated on impact, but remotely.

A good thing to see.

BSOD = Blue Screen of Death

That'd be a sight, "Shuttle ready for launch." "Ok, fire engines." *Windows firewall sees that you would like to start launch sequence, would you like to continue?* *Presses Continue* *Windows isn't quite sure what you meant.*
