NY Times:

Shuttle report spurs debate in Congress.  “During the Apollo era we set aside almost 6 percent of the nation’s budget for space exploration,” he said. “You know what the number is today? It’s less than six-tenths of 1 percent. You can’t cut and cut and cut and expect to do the same thing.”  I think we all recognize NASA’s been trying to make chicken salad out of chicken scat.  But it’s gone over the top, risking lives.  Time for Congress to belly up to the bar and make the national will to explore space a priority.  Or, at least to clearly prioritize it against Social Security, Medicare, and defense spending.
