R.D. Boozerabout this book: Congressional pork barrel politics are destroying NASA and crippling both the exploration and the commercial development of space. These two endeavors could be a tremendous contributor to the U.S. economy. This book cites actual NASA, university and industry studies which indicate that NASA could be doing exciting missions (even more ambitious than the Apollo Moon landings of bygone years) within the space agency's current budget. However, certain members of Congress have written into law that NASA must use older, impractical, and very expensive technology as-well-as inappropriate contracting methods to funnel pork to their constituents. Thus, NASA is being forced to work on projects that it knows will not yield practical results.
How did NASA come to be in the dilemma in which it currently finds itself? What are the new technologies and methods that can fix the problem? What impact will the suggested positive changes to NASA have on society as a whole? These questions and many more are answered in The Plundering of NASA: an Exposé. Ironically, this is an issue which the main stream media has either ignored or of which it is unaware.
The book is meticulously researched. Just the list of references in the back of the book is over ten pages long.
If you wish to see Americans spread throughout the inner Solar System within our lifetimes, you owe it to yourself to read this book.
• "I hope you continue as a voice against pork at NASA"
— Lori Garver, (former Deputy Administrator of NASA) commenting to the author about The Plundering of NASA: an Exposé
• "The Plundering of NASA: An Exposé by R.D. Boozer is the indispensable source for a wide range of information about the SLS controversy and the machinations within NASA, the Congress, aerospace companies and two Administrations that have left us in the terrible mess we are in today. It is the most comprehensive single source for both SLS-Orion program information and context. I have written several articles about the SLS issue and found the book very valuable and interesting."
— John K Strickland, Jr.; member National Space Society Board of Directors; Advocate: Space Frontier Foundation
