Kids love outer space and space ships, this makes sense.

What! No, this makes no sense. Go ahead a name just ONE MMO, free-to-play or not, that have reached that many "kids", even WOW can't comped with numbers like that.

NASA should really have made their homework, before going into the MMO marked. This is just sad....

They plan to license it to schools, which would likely be funded by the Gov with emphasis on STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). Seems more than reasonable.

Yeah, because kids just loooooove educational games.

Kids need an introduction to science and mathematics at an early age, this is a pretty viable alternative to handing them a science book and scaring them off.

Wow! I think NASA trying to keep interest in kids in anyway is important. The loss of the space shuttle is pretty sever. NASA now has no active space ship. A space program with no space ships is way more sad than NASA trying to drum up support through an MMO.
