There does not seem to be a real WMS service running at that address. If you look at the getcapabilities.xml file you will notice that it is a copy of GetCapabilities of demo.mapserver.org/cgi-bin/wms?SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.1.1&REQUEST=GetCapabilities

You can't get any better result with domain name https://ladsweb.nascom.nasa.gov/wms/
I would say that this feedback is invalid for QGIS and you should contact NASA instead and ask what they really mean to have on that page.
