Re: Scotty and his military comment

A genuine question here, because I'm not really 'au fait' with the structure:

NASA tends to recruit military personel to become astronauts, with a particular focus on the air force. Not to say they don't recruit scientists as well, but the recruiting policy has always tended to favor military (or ex-military) personel with experience in aeronautics.

Does this make NASA part of the military?
