Money for NASA Priorities at Risk in Next Congress –
From the article:
When the next Congress convenes in January, the Obama administration can expect more questions — and criticisms — targeting some of the agency’s top priorities, including:
• A controversial mission to corral an asteroid into orbit around the moon and use it as a steppingstone for a mission to Mars. The mission also would give NASA scientists insight on how to deflect asteroids headed to Earth.
I was looking for information to see if Congress had approved the $300 million that NASA says it needs to fund research on climate change, severe weather, and glacier’s. Glacier’s? Anyway, I came across this story.
Seriously now? NASA’s priority is nudging a asteroid in place to orbit around the moon, lol. Even if I was considering such a nutball idea…would I put it out in the public arena as a serious idea? Of course not.
I don’t know about you but…I’ve had the notion for a long time that “crazies” are running things in this world. Personally,… I take this as proof.
