The stamp first came out at 34 cents, the prevailing first class rate at the time. It has been reissued several times whenever that rate increased.
Of course that is ok, why wouldn't it be? The post office issues commemorative stamps for many different cultural things (including Toy Story 3 ) That has nothing to do with having NASA become a cultural fellowship mission.

Obviously George W. is a Muslim. We should check his birth certificate.

Re: Obama directs NASA to Improve Relations with the Muslim World

Latest FOXNews.com - Former NASA Director Says Muslim Outreach Push 'Deeply Flawed'

From the article:
"NASA ... represents the best of America. Its purpose is not to inspire Muslims or any other cultural entity," Michael Griffin, who served as NASA administrator during the latter half of the Bush administration, told FoxNews.com.

"Officials from the White House and NASA on Tuesday stood by Bolden's statement that part of his mission is to improve relations with Muslim countries -- though NASA backed off the claim that such international diplomacy is Bolden's "foremost" responsibility.

"He also said that while welcome, Muslim-nation cooperation is not vital for U.S. advancements in space exploration. "There is no technology they have that we need," Griffin said. The former administrator stressed that any criticism should be directed at Obama, not Bolden, since NASA merely carries out policy."

And I guess it isn't just pandering to Muslim nations for $$$$

"A Feb. 16 blog in the Orlando Sentinel reported that Bolden discussed the outreach during a lecture to engineering students. As he did in the interview with Al Jazeera last month, Bolden was quoted then saying Obama told him to "find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries." He reportedly talked about the importance of helping countries establish space programs and pointed to the largest Muslim country in the world, Indonesia, as a possible partner. "We really like Indonesia because the State Department, the Department of Education (and) other agencies in the U.S. are reaching out to Indonesia as the largest Muslim nation in the world," he said. Bolden did not describe such outreach as his prime mission at the time."

EDIT: The lecture was held at the National Academy of Engineering, National Meeting, on Feb. 16 in Washington, D.C. at the National Academy of Sciences Building.

Re: Obama directs NASA to Improve Relations with the Muslim World

NASA engineers interact with Muslim students and faculty at Islamist countries? I just hope we're not teaching them how to build rockets and stuff. We really don't need NASA turning into the Peace Corps...things are just perfectly fine as they are...we hate them, they hate us...we kill them, they kill us...which ever comes first.

Re: Obama directs NASA to Improve Relations with the Muslim World

Kennedy said we're going to the moon, Obama said we're going to the Middle East

What is he thinking?

It does seem if you look around you don't see all the cars running around with Obama stickers on them like you did a few months back.

There's got to be a joke about this program preparing NASA for future diplomacy with alien life...

Well, in keeping with making people feel good and merging it with its mission to find alien life - NASA has decided to build a new space shuttle which will run between Tijuana and San Diego in order to help illegal aliens feel good about crossing the border.

Re: Obama directs NASA to Improve Relations with the Muslim World

Maybe, if it doesn't work out with the Muslim nations, NASA can build a smarter football:
