YouTube user dameswe made this absolutely inspiring promotional video for NASA after feeling frustrated with the space agency's inability to market its crucial and astonishing mission to the public.
NASA is the most fascinating, adventurous, epic institution ever devised by human beings, and their media sucks. Seriously. None of their brilliant scientists appear to know how to connect with the social media crowd, which is now more important than ever. In fact, NASA is an institution whose funding directly depends on how the public views them.
In all of their brilliance, NASA seems to have forgotten to share their hopes and dreams in a way the public can relate to, leaving one of humanities grandest projects with terrible PR and massive funding cuts.
We could not agree more. Dameswe says he has tons more ideas for a NASA marketing campaign. We urge the agency to contact him immediately.
