NASA Using "Green Lantern" to Get You Interested in Space

Posted: June 17th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
NASA Using "Green Lantern" to Get You Interested in SpaceSubmit Comment
NASA just posted a beautiful shot of the nebula known as RCW 120 to its "Image of the Day" gallery on its website, making lots of references to "Green Lantern" to get people excited. Check out the photo below.

NASA writes: "This glowing emerald nebula seen by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope is reminiscent of the glowing ring wielded by the superhero Green Lantern. In the comic books, the diminutive Guardians of the Planet 'Oa' forged his power ring, but astronomers believe rings like this are actually sculpted by the powerful light of giant 'O' stars, the most massive type of star known to exist.

This bubble is far from unique. Just as the Guardians of Oa have selected many beings to serve as Green Lanterns and patrol different sectors of space, Spitzer has found that such bubbles are common and can be found around O stars throughout our Milky Way galaxy.
"

Because the infinite magnificence of endless reality just won't do it, I need some f*cking goofball in green pajamas and a stuck on stupid mood ring instead.

Someone said 'space' and 'NASA', so no interest. Had they sad 'new shot of 14 year old nude actress', there'd be like thirty posts already.

New Orleans was voted America's dirtiest city the other day

Unfortunatly for NASA this wont help. Government funding has been cut drastically of course for things like NASA that benefit our country to support dead beat cities like New Orleans

Here's something for the space enthusiast.

All other folks need not apply

"Unfortunatly for NASA this wont help. Government funding has been cut drastically of course for things like NASA that benefit our country to support dead beat cities like New Orleans"

That and the billions they give to Africa and Pakistan and their refusal to admit that neither Medicare nor Social Security can survive even though both are littered with IOUs. Billions wasted on foreign nations and utopian nonsense, but the sh*t we need, like a space agency and new roads and infrastructure, pffft.

Green Lantern can't even get people interested in Green Lantern.

I know NASA isn't funded as it once was, but using Green Lantern won't give me wood for furthering my interest in space.

Nice of NASA to use government funds to promote Green Lantern (for what I'll assume for free).

Savvy NASA... savvy.

@ Ranger
I'm pretty sure it was the other way around. NASA are the whores for money, and WB was probably the john.
It sucks for the dudes at NASA. Times are tough and budgets tight.

The article was probably just written by a NASA geek who also happens to like Green Lantern. No conspiracy theory necessary.
