The difference is the capitalization of NASA.  In the actual link, NASA is in lowercase, but the board is being "helpful" and capitalizing it for us.

This happens even inside code and tt tags!

Hey, you!  "It's" with an apostrophe means "it is" or "it has."  "Its" without an apostrophe means "belongs to it."

Strange. Typed n as a in lowercase, and it came out as uppercase.
Well, it is like this: The truth doesn't need insults. Insults are the refuge of a darkened mind, a mind that refuses to open and see. Foul language can't outcompete knowledge. And knowledge is the result of education. Education is the result of the wish to know more, not less.

I suspect that Lunar Orbit has set up filters to properly capitalize names like nasa.  Similar to the naughty-words filters that would mangle names like Scunthorpe.

Changing the capitals to lower case did it for me. :)
Truth needs no defense.  Nobody can take those footsteps I made on the surface of the moon away from me.
