NASA receives funding increase; Kepler launching soon

Sunday, March 01, 2009

(NASA) est magistratus cursus aerii et universi in Civitatibus Foederatis Americae. In 1958 conditum est. Maxima res gesta NASA adhuc est iter quod astronavis Apollo 11 in lunam fecit. In hoc itinere, Neil Armstrong primus astronauta historiae pedem suam in solum lunae posuit.


Two pieces of news on NASA:

1) Funding for NASA for this year's budget is going to be increased to $18.7 billion: "Provides $18.7 billion for NASA. Combined with the $1 billion provided to the agency in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, this represents a total increase of more than $2.4 billion over the 2008 level." I knew the McCain supporters on space.com were full of it when they claimed Obama wouldn't support funding for NASA as President.

2) Kepler is launching soon. Okay, I write about Kepler all the time, but the thing is, Kepler is launching soon. A mission that will find other Earths is launching soon. Exciting stuff.
