AndreMA: Thanks, Obama!I remember during his 2008 campaign that he wanted to slash NASA funding in order to fund some education initiative he favored. After a large outcry, he claimed to have changed his mind.Instead he was just lying, as he is more than half the time. It's a shame he didn't bother to actually attend one of the last Shuttle launches. I'm sure he could have gotten a great vantage point... maybe a lawn chair in the flame trench.
TheCheese: Whoa, whoa, WHOA!Ain't nobody gonna be sendin' our good duct tape inta space, and that's final.
SevenizGud: $17.7B - NASA budgetI guess the budget could be bigger, but we are too busy paying for the 7 trillion dollars in pointless foreign wars our corporate masters wanted.
