NASA to Put Muslim on Moon Using Muslim Technology
NASA engineers are already "close to testing" a solid rocket booster powered by combustible animal dung, and operated according to principles discovered by Ibn Al-Haytham, Islam's best-known scientist, who died in 1039 AD.
Scott Ott reports:
Echoing the words of President John F. Kennedy in March of 1961, President Barack H. Obama told a joint session of Congress, “I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal of landing a Muslim on the Moon, and returning him safely to Earth using only Muslim technology.”
According to Mr. Bolden, NASA engineers are already “close to testing” a solid rocket booster powered by combustible animal dung, and operated according to principles discovered by Ibn Al-Haytham, Islam’s best-known scientist, who died in 1039 A.D..
While President Kennedy put a 10-year deadline on his moon-landing challenge, President Obama said he hopes to achieve this new daring goal “before the millennium is out.”
That might be too soon.
On a serious note, it’s truly remarkable that, not all that long ago in the grand scheme of things, the Islamic world was light years ahead of the West in almost every way. But they’ve intentionally stood almost still.
