Re: Great Images
Agreed. I've never been thrilled about <group> studies as an academic discipline as such programs tend to be more about telling people what to think rather than how. And I do agree that NASA does its best work when it is focused on science and engineering, leaving politics and social reform to others. But I sometimes wonder, given my interests, if I wouldn't have been better off as a History or Political Science major with a minor in Computer Science, rather than a Computer Science major (the computing profession had been my career objective since high school, but I've always had other interests). We put too much emphasis on education as job training, when mental and citizenship training are actually more important (the old master-apprentice system is still the best way to learn a trade).
