    Anyone know what kind of knowledge Muslims have in the way of aerial technology? or survivability in extreme conditions?

    Maybe there is something we can learn from them? Maybe....?
    "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

      Let's check with the muslims in London.
      I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

        Many of the societies in that area, the Persians and Sumerians and others, have had periods of great scientific advancement. In most cases those periods were well before Islamic Fundamentalism took hold. Persians-yes. Arabs-Yes. Muslims-not so much.

        Either way all of that would fall under task #2 (International cooperation). By spelling it out explicitly as a separate task it becomes a useless feel-good affirmative action program.

            1. "Re-inspire children to study science and math." - Fantastic idea that is way overdue. My wife is a middle-school science teacher and would love to teach more about space to her kids.

            2. “Expand our international relationships.” - Another good idea, but the current White House occupant seems bent on p*issing off all our long time allies like Britain while he expands our relationships with countries that really don't like us that much.

            3. "To reach out to the Muslim world.” - This is the part that throws me. Obama is not saying let's reach out to the governments of the Middle East and elsewhere. Governments that have something to gain from partnering with the U.S. in space endeavours. Obama and Bolden say we should reach out to a particular religion, instead. If that is the new policy, are we going to reach to out to the Catholics, Mennonites, Jews, and the Buddhists, too? While NASA has always been an indirect diplomatic tool of the U.S., it is being sold down the river by the current administration. Ever since Obama has taken office, NASA has been told to solve global warming, fix the brakes on Toyota Prius's and clean up the Gulf Of Mexico, but had the one new manned space program since the Space Shuttle thirty years ago, cancelled. How does that inspire anyone?

              We should really be reaching out to the Amish.

                          When he balances the budget despite a trillion dollar spending bill signed into law days after ascending to his throne,it won't be due to shrewd management of the government's money but due to cancellation of scientific programs and increased taxes.
                          But he will be hailed as a hero by his supporters who won't realize that doing so will keep dumbing down America.
