1.) You are using "Argument From Authority" --- a known logical fallacy.
2.) Your link is not to NASA, but rather to _Popular Mechanics_ ---
a publication whose credibility and reporting accuracy has degenerated
to to point that it is now on the par of _The National Enquirer_.
3.) The quality of science and engineering at NASA are also no longer what
they once were. Some of the "research" NASA is funding these days under its
so-called "Breakthrough Propulsion Programm" is indeed crackpot nonsense.
