Earth Science Cuts

Fear and rambling at NASA, editorial, Nature (subscription)

"Only a confused space agency would consider shutting down the Voyager spacecraft as they approach the uncharted edge of the Solar System. Or cutting the basic research grants that provide the scientific basis for everything it does. Or cancelling satellites that make critical measurements of global climate change. Last week a US National Academy of Sciences panel said that enough is enough, and called on NASA to reinstate some of its cancelled Earth-science projects."

... and more, opinion, Daily Press

"Aeronautics isn't the only NASA program feeling the squeeze from the manned space program and shifting agency priorities. At an agency where most eyes are looking into space, those that look back at Earth are finding themselves vulnerable."
