Let's see now...In the 1960's the US had this big project
to land on the moon and this incredibly famous technical agency called "NASA" to do the job.
So pretty much every idiot around the world knew who NASA was. Not N.A.S.A., but NASA. Even if the BBC now have an annoying habit of calling them "Nasa" which is purely imaginary.
And some technical person decides to call his instrument company "NASA"....which cynic could say was intentionally trying to fool people into thinking there was a technical connection and some engineering excellence or partnership
Nope, sorry, that kind of intentional (or grossly uneducated) coincidence just makes me distrust the management and the company, forever after.
Just one man's highly opinionated opinion.
