NASA is accepting donations for their space program.

HOUSTON - In an unprecedented move, NASA has decided to ask the America public to make a donation to the space agency.

NASA Spokesperson Trent Timmelfarb told the news media that due to certain program cost overrides NASA has had to borrow some money from Greenland.

Timmelfarb said that they were going to borrow it from China at first but Greenland gave them a much lower interest rate.

He noted that the donations are tax deductible and citizens who are concerned about the aeronautical future of their children and grandchildren can donate anywhere from $100 to $10,000 or even more.

Timmelfarb stressed the fact that out of each dollar, 91 cents will go towards the space program, 6 cents will go to employee wages, 2 cents will go to pay the electric bill, and 1 cent will go to provide snacks and coffee for the executive eating facility.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
