NASA Rejection Letter is Awesome
NASA is light years ahead (pun intended) of the general public when it comes to the space program, aeronautics and aerospace research. However that doesn’t stop people from sending in their ideas to the agency, and while we are sure some are genuine letters with worthwhile research from small sector researches there are letters that are just sent in as a prank, as is the case with this letter that received a formal rejection letter from NASA.
While we are not sure of the exact contests of the letter sent in by one Mr. Jones, we do know that his letter was based on sending a rocket into space by using the explosive reaction caused by mixing Diet Coke and Mentos. In his letter titled “A Breakthrough in Awesome Space Rockets, Now Give Me Some Money, he must have stated “a Shitload of Coke would have to be used” due to NASA’s response.
Needless to say NASA will not be using his idea, and they politely told him to shove it.
