Spock Loves Him Some Obama

- By Bossip Staff

“Star Trek” icon Leonard Nimoy, who played Vulcan Mr. Spock, is all hopped up about President Obama’s support of the NASA program and plans for space exploration. Spock is also sure that Obama is a sci-fi fan. Pop the hood.

Famous fictional Vulcan Leonard Nimoy says he’s excited about what’s to come in the world of real-life space exploration.

Nimoy, who became famous playing Spock in the original Star Trek series, spoke Thursday at the 26th National Space Symposium, where he was accepting the 2010 Douglas S. Morrow Public Outreach Award. The actor said he’s a big fan of real-world spaceflight, as well as the fictionalized version, and had watched President Barack Obama’s major space policy speech that afternoon.

“I do believe that President Obama means it when he says that he is 100 percent interested in space,” Nimoy told reporters. “I know for sure he’s a Star Trek fan,” he said, because the first time the two men met, President Obama made Spock’s traditional V-shaped finger spread.

So in other words, Spock wants Obama to “Live Long and Prosper.”

    Of course Obama is a nerd…duh! The man is a visionary though, and he didn’t grow up with a platinum spoon in his mouth like some other Presidents, so I think he can balance the country’s vision for the future with the hard-boiled realities of our financial present. Keep hating, he’ll keep winning! YES WE CAN!

    Would Spock rather fly on a One Billion Dollar rocket as proposed or on a Shuttle, equipped with the Technlogy of the Flying Saucer, wich I suggested to Nasa after I got the patent.
    It could be applied to a Shuttle, which then could fly at a constant 1 G tot the Moon in a few hours or to Mars in a day. Braking at halfway point would also be 1 G.
    No heatshields needed. very few barf-bags and no osteoporosis.
    Of course the Rocket Propulsion Experts at the Cleveland, Ohio Lab were dead set-against it.
    Who would need them if that was done?
    They were touching huge salaries and had no intention of killing the Goose that laid Golden Eggs.
    “Not interested, thank you for the copy of your Patent!”
    After the Space Disasters they decided to experiment with the circuitry, did not contact me as I had suggested and caused the big black-out in 2004. A little, innocent and defenceless
    tree was blamed.
    A rocket Propulsion Engineer does not know anything about electronics.
    The Shuttles could be revamped with the technolgy for about $100 million dollar after Nasa pays me my fee of $50 million.
    The invention was evaluated at $600 Billion by the Hudson Institute, if the USA would have it before Russia.
    Whoever rules Space, rules the World.
    Well Spock, what would you say?
