While NASA certainly has its share of funding troubles, we doubt that the money-making solution now being proposed by California Congressman Ken Calvert is the best way to get them the dough they need. Currently the ranking Republican on the House Space and Aeronautics subcommittee, Calvert wants NASA to get in the business of selling advertising on its spacecraft and other gear -- an idea that others have proposed with less of a straight face in the past (as seen above). While it's unclear just how much interest the proposal has garnered, The Register reports that the idea has been enough to raise the ire of "high altitude advertising" firm JP Aerospace, which feels that NASA would be unfairly muscling in on their turf.
