I don't think it would affect Chicago's standing much - it WILL still be the KING of the Midwest! And I don't see any cities in the region passing it in my lifetime!

How can Houston be below San Fran, Boston, Philly and Miami in global relevance when its the home of BIG OIL? And NASA (which gave birth to MANY technologies we take for granted today)?

Well it isn't the home of NASA, DC is.

But either way Houston is a very globally relevant city. I can't see it any other way.

Well, because it's a government agency, but they don't call DC the Space City.

True but it does not change the fact that DC is the home of NASA. Houston has the control center. Does not make less relevant either. It's a very important part of the US economy.

All I'm saying is that Houston is the city most people probably associate with NASA. Houston was the first word spoken from the moon; not Washington.

I'm sure this is all the other poster meant when he called Houston the "home" of it.

Not totally sure

Goddard is very large in Green Belt MD, and Cape Kennedy is always my first image of NASA. Those rockets blasting away make a huge impression. Got to see a night launch from a distance but very impressive.

For Houston absolutely Oil comes to mind before NASA ever would, at least in my mind.

NASA has facilities all over the country. hell Fairmont WV has one

A serious question that I do not know the answer to. Which site employs more Goddard or Houston?

Also NASA advances are by no means limited to Houston Goddard produces some tremendous technology as well. Though overall NASA is behinf the DOD in terms of development by a pretty significant way, especially cutting edge technologies, they just take longer to make it mainstream from the DOD
