Space: The Public Relations Frontier

NASA is seeking input from the gamer community on a space MMORPG. Initially this strikes me as pretty awesome. I would be totally interisted in a realistic depiction of contamporary space exploration. Thats why I play with Celestia. My second thought is that this is an effort by NASA to build up public support in light of the bad press they have been getting in the last few years. I find it hard to be too upset for them being savvy and pragmatic about P.R. but I can't help but feel like they could better spend their efforts on making improvements where things have been going wrong rather than allocating resources to seeming cool to the nerds.
