>by somebody with an obvious love for NASA
I was with you up to that point. Nerds that 'love' NASA today are not worthy of being called nerds. NASA hasn't deserved anyone's love for several decades. NASA today is all about theater & FUD that begs funding so they can keep looking under the bed for monsters that don't exist. Your nerd is nothing but a shill, then. We won't get into what that makes you, but if you come to your senses, you might save your brand.
