Another Neil DeGrasse Tyson video on NASA funding

Sunday, March 11, 2012

This video created yesterday has already started to go viral and I would be remiss if I didn't embed it here as well:

My comment to add to this: in addition to NASA's tiny funding per capita, other developed nations are even worse: the US's closest neighbour Canada is the easiest example with its $424.6 million budget (0.027% of GDP) compared to NASA's $17.8 billion (0.1162% of GDP). And this in spite of Canada's relatively minuscule budget deficit.
