Hi Nimer,

Yes, I agree with you. I'll send this group something a teacher sent me. It talks about how blind kids were not taught braille and they didn't get jobs.

Now, isn't this going a bit far? Wouldn't the money used to
launch it
into space be put to better use by educating the blind youth
they're so
concerned about?

Louis Braille Coin Will be Launched into Space
I figured that some of you would just love this one!

National Federation of the Blind and NASA Confirm Historic Flight

Baltimore, Maryland (March 26, 2009): In a surprise announcement
at
the launch ceremony for the new Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver
Dollar, NASA announced that the new commemorative coin
celebrating
the life and work of the inventor of the reading code for the
blind
will fly on a future space shuttle mission.  The announcement, by
NASA Deputy Administrator for Educational Programs Dr.  Joyce
Winterton, came at the end of the official event announcing the
availability of this beautiful new coin, which will help the
National
Federation of the Blind to increase Braille literacy in the
United
States.

Dr. Marc Maurer, President of the National Federation of the
Blind,
said: "The Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar symbolizes
the
power of knowledge and future opportunities for blind children
across
America.  It is therefore fitting that this historic coin will be
part of a mission to uncover the secrets of the universe.
Perhaps
someday a Braille reader will also be part of such a mission."

Dr. Joyce Winterton said: "NASA believes strongly in the
importance
of educational opportunities for everyone, and that is why we
have
partnered with the National Federation of the Blind to help
create
programs that enhance scientific study for blind youth.
Launching
the first coin ever to contain tactile, readable Braille into
space
symbolizes NASA's commitment to the spread of knowledge by every
means and to every individual."

The Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar goes on sale to the
general public at noon today. Those interested in ordering a
coin
should visit <http://www.usmint.gov/
