Apparently NASA spends loads of cash on parties.
These happen with every launch, and are meant to honor the people who contributed to the launch. I do understand the arguments against it, but I’m on NASA’s side on this. It’s good to see an organization dedicating such resources to recreation. Too often we underestimate the value of play and enjoyment.
It must do wonders for morale of the workers, and I would say it’s definitely worth it.
