This Week's Listing of NASA's Problems

Amid NASA turbelence, Congress stays on board, Houston Chronicle

"With NASA pushing ahead with plans for exploring the moon and Mars, administrator Michael Griffin acknowledged last week that scandals and reports of astronaut misconduct have "shaken public confidence" in his agency. Congress, however, is standing by NASA, ignoring a veto threat in an attempt to fund space endeavors with more money than President Bush's $17.3 billion request for the 2008 fiscal year."

Editor's note: What does the word "turbelence" mean? I know I make lots of typos - but the Chronicle has a slightly larger staff than I do - one that ought to be able to catch these things.
