NASA's 2013 Budget.

Well, the new presidential proposal for a budget is out. And with it, the time to discuss NASA's budget for this year begins! A few links in case you want to see the budget yourselves and you somehow are very Google-impaired:

NASA's site for the budget.

OMB's page for the whole thing. (Warning, huge .pdf in there with the whole federal budget, not just NASA's)

Among the reactions:

A summary by Keith Cowing from NasaWatch
The Planetary Society's take on it
Comments on commercial crew

And my personal favorite:

Rep. Rohrbacher's take on it.

"Any more of this kind of "leadership" and soon NASA's entire budget will be consumed by JWST and the SLS, two things that won't have made it off the launch pad ten years from now."

I don't know who he (/she?) is (I've got enough with the politicians in my country), but boy, is he right.


Rune. Criticizing is fun!


In the beginning the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a "bad move"
