Um, yeah, certainly nobody's going to mistake _that_ for anything put
up by the National Air and Space Administration. :-)
I'm curious why they picked the letters "nasa" though, if not to
attract accidental hits, which _would_ violate the spirit of the law?
I was expecting it to be something like the National Association of
Something Arbitrary, where there would be clear reason for use of the
name, and clearly no conflict.
