"Deep Space Homer" Inspires NASA

Simpsons News — Posted 01 Oct, 2002 by Scott

Hey fans, one of our favorite episodes "Deep Space Homer" has inspired NASA. How so? Well as the episode noted, NASA's TV rating are low. So NASA will be sending Homer into space.. no wait, actually they'll be mounting a 24-hour camera to the top of the shuttle. "NASA wanted the shuttle to look exciting again, hopefully getting back on the evening news.
"That's the intention," Neal Newman said, adding that many at NASA remembered an episode of The Simpsons that dealt with the problem. "Oh no," screamed Bart Simpson. "Not another boring space launch. Change the channel." Bart dived for the television plug, pulling it from the wall just as the launch telecast started. "Close call," he and his dad, Homer, gasped together."

Just another way The Simpsons are helping society.. or something. Read the full story by Clicking Here.
